READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kats Mom

From the back of a Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix envelope. Delicious and filling. The brown rice tastes like ground beef in the finished product and my husband doesn't even realize he is eating a low cholesterol meal!

This is a very tasty recipe. I added one tablespoon of chicken soup base and a heaping teaspoon of minced garlic, which made it fabulous.
