- Ready In:
- 2 (6 1/4 ounce) boxes long grain and wild rice blend (I use Uncle Ben's)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 cup butter, divided
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 cup heavy cream
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Cook onion, chopped bell pepper, mushrooms, and garlic in 1/4 cup of butter until the onion is transparent. Add rice and herb packets and cook, stirring, until the rice begins to turn golden.
- Add the chicken broth and simmer gently in a covered pan until the rice is barely tender and the liquid is mostly absorbed.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Butter a deep casserole dish. Lightly transfer half the rice mixture to the dish with a fork. Top with half the pepper rings and half the cheese. Repeat layers. Dot with remaining butter and pour cream over the top.
- Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I was born and raised for the most part in Georgia. Since 1997 I've lived in the beautiful mountains of western NC, where I spend way too much time at work and not nearly enough time camping! I have a partner of 15 years (Lee) and 3 kids--2 grown and 1 teenager still at home. Lee doesn't cook, but she's my cooking cheerleader, and she and my son will always at least try anything I make, no matter what. Camping is one of my favorite things to do. Other favorite ways to spend my time are doing beadwork, knitting, and making homemade soap. I should also admit that I spend waaaay too much time on the internet, but the bright side of that is that it brought me to Zaar! I spend a ridiculous amount of time here, but I love every minute of it. It's also has helped cure me of my pathological cookbook buying. I used to call cookbooks with full-page glossy photos my food porn. ;-) Now, thanks to all the talented photographers here, I can get all the food porn I want! I love to read recipes, which most of my friends think is just weird. I suspect, though, that a lot of you don't think it's weird at all! I love to cook, but only when I want to. I also love to entertain and wish I had time to do more of it. I love trying new recipes. I was a vegetarian (vegan, actually) for several years, and that's when I got hooked on trying so many different cuisines. I still love vegetarian foods, but I do eat some meat, fish, and dairy/eggs now. I still try to keep it healthy and eat as little processed food as possible, but I'm not totally strict about it. Sometimes I want some good old junk food--I just try to make it home-made junk, so at least I know what's in it! My pet peeve is willful ignorance. Grrrr
