READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Northwest Lynnie

Flavorful and easy, and not your usual risotto.

Top Review by MarinasDaddy

Very tasty. Would definitely make again. I had zucchini and carrots instead of bell pepper to go with the onions, and they went well. I might try to bake it in a covered pan next time.
