Italian Rice

This was totally a use-up-what-I-have type of recipe; there is no source of it. It's part of the reason I had such a hard time deciding on a name for it (thanks, Mom!!). The end result was a thick, veggie mixture, with rice added in. It tasted much like spaghetti, but the sauce wasn't thin enough to even look like it.


coconut oil

1 green pepper, diced

1 onion, diced

garlic (I won't give you an amount, because I probably use about 12 cloves in everything I make)

1 can/jar of tomato sauce

salt & pepper, to taste

1 zuchinni, shaved (use a potato peeler)

2 tomatoes, chopped/diced

4 cups cooked brown rice


1) In a large pot, saute the onion, green pepper, and garlic in the coconut oil (as well as any leftover zuchinni chunks you may have).

2) Once the veggies & garlic have browned, add the tomato sauce, and season with salt & pepper (oregano would be great, too!!)

3) Stir in the shaved zuuchinni. The mixture is going to get very thick. Stir well to combine everything evenly.

4) Stir in the mixed rice, as well as the chopped tomatoes. Let simmer for a minute or two, and serve :)
