Happy Saturday! I hope you are all having a great weekend.
Something about rice with tomato sauce, I just love it. Spanish rice….yummmm; and now Italian rice. My boyfriend made this delicious meal for me the other night and this rice was on the menu.
The recipe comes from a website named cookingwithnonna.com. It has lots of great recipes but way too many advertisements. I do not blame anyone for making a living but it is sometimes hard to navigate. Sorry Nonna!
3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, finely diced
3 cups passata or tomato puree
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
Grated Parmigiano cheese
Heat oil in a large saucepan, add onions and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add in the tomato puree and salt. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
In a separate saucepan bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add the rice and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Add cooked rice to the sauce and combine over heat for 1-2 minutes.
Grate Parmigiano cheese to garnish.
Damn that is easy!
