Sweet Bell Pepper Rice

Joey Joan 64

"Normally a pepper and rice dish has a Mexican or Spanish kind of flair to it. I wanted something a little more Italian, and this is what I came up with."

  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion in the hot oil until tender, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook and stir until onion is translucent, 2 to 3 minutes more. Stir green bell pepper and red bell pepper into onion mixture; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with basil, oregano, black pepper, and salt.
  3. Pour wine into vegetable mixture and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer until liquid is reduced, about 5 minutes. Stir rice into vegetables. Top with Parmesan cheese before serving.

We love rice, and this one is very good. I used Arborio (Italian rice) personal preference, and fresh basil instead of the dried. With this I made mild Italian Sausage, next time I will doub...

This was such a disappointment... Sorry...didn't like anything about it. The herbs were overpowering..I can't fathom where all the good reviews came from?? Grrr...and it's making me rate a star...
