    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    I threw this together last night to see what I could do with the bits and bobs I had floating around in my fridge. I am not claiming it is at all authentic Italian but the ingredients I had around pointed in that direction. I used jasmine rice because that is what I had around but any long grain should work. My microwave is a 700 watt variety to adjust as needed for your own microwave.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put all ingredients except the parmesan cheese into a microwave proof dish.
    2. 2
      Cover and microwave for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and liquid absorbed. Be very careful when uncovering because the steam will be very hot. I learned this the hard way when making this dish and ended up with a very bad steam burn.
    3. 3
      Stir in parmesan.

      This was good and easy to make. I like that it is made in the microwave. I followed the recipe as written other then I used an 8 ounce can of mushrooms. I too thought the basil and oregano were a bit much. Next time I would cut them down.

      This recipe is great but I think there is too much basil and oregano. Maybe just 1/2 teaspoon of each would be better. I used basmati rice but another time I would use long grain rice. Thanks Sarah. Made for Beverage tag.

      Made exactly as directed, (including being careful about the steam! :D ), except that I omitted the mushrooms. Marvellous!! Why have I never done this before! So simple, and deliciously full of flavour! Thanks, Sarah-Jayne, I will be making rice like this often, from now on!
