I've been making this recipe for nearly 20 years. We like rice, so I double or triple the amount of rice and use 2 jars or cans of Spaghetti sauce. Always a hit!

I made this for dinner last night with one switch - instead of celery, I added a green pepper I needed to use up and some sliced fresh mushrooms. Turned out very tasty, and it was a nice switch from pasta. Thanks!
