|Dei Fratelli Tomato Products|
There are dozens of ways to use tomato products in your recipes. When Dei Fratelli sent me another assortment of their quality tomato products for this review and giveaway, I was delighted because I cook with them more days than not!
I was sent a 28 oz. can of Petite Diced Tomatoes, Seasoned Diced Tomatoes, All Purpose Italian Sauce and Whole Tomatoes, 26 oz. jar of Homestyle Pasta Sauce, 16 oz. jar of Casera Salsa, and 15 oz. can of Sloppy Joe Sauce and Pizza Sauce.
If you want to save money and time, drop some pounds before the holidays, eat something healthy and satisfying, then I really wish you would try this recipe. This vegetarian dish has rice, pinto beans, onion, peppers, and cabbage to lend sweetness to the spices, salsa, and pasta sauce that once combined turn this into something incredibly delicious.
I honestly love it and make this dinner quite often. Trust me, dear readers, the pounds will melt off without trying if only you eat this as a main dish a few times a week.
|My Vegetarian Spicy Rice-Bean Dinner|
My Vegetarian Spicy Rice-Bean Dinner
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1-1/2 cups finely sliced cabbage
1 hot Hungarian Hot Wax Pepper
1/4 cup California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin Bold & Peppery Olive Oil
3/4 cup cooked dry pinto beans
2 cups uncooked rice
2 tablespoons of Dei Fratelli Homestyle Pasta Sauce
2 tablespoons of Dei Fratelli Casera Salsa
2 teaspoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
4 cups of water
1/2 cup of uncooked macaroni
Add your finely chopped onion, chopped pepper, and fresh cabbage that you slice into thin diagonal strips into the pot with your olive oil and cook until onions become golden and the cabbage cooks some and softens a bit.
Next add your raw rice and macaroni, stir in sugar, salt, and spices and cook for a few minutes until thoroughly combined.
Now add your water, cooked pinto beans, the sauces, and cook this on high until it comes to a boil. Then cover with a lid and lower the heat to low and cook for about 20 minutes until the rice is fluffy.
*This is own honest opinion. No money was exchanged. I did receive free products to facilitate this review.*
