This is a recipe I got out of Cooking Light Magazine. I thought it tasted awesome especially since it is also good for you!! I made a few changes from the original recipe: I skipped the olive oil and only used cooking spray, skipped the added salt, and the fresh basil (as I didn't have any available). The only other change that I made was I added the onions to the pan at the beginning with the rice and garlic. I thought that it turned out great and think I will make it the same way next time.
