Simmered Italian Rice

It seems like there is never enough time for cooking at the end of the day, especially once Russell gets home from work. Therefore, my goal for weeknight dinners is to plan meals that are quick and delicious. I find myself getting tired of the same old side-items and am always searching for something new to try. I have had this particular recipe saved for some time and recently decided I would give it a try. This dish is very easy to prepare and requires little prep work. I typically enjoy foods that are full of flavor, so I was a little apprehensive of how this recipe would turn out. Luckily, we found it to be a wonderful compliment to our meal. The parmesan cheese really brings all the flavors together and leaves you wanting more!

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon of your favorite Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 cup fresh chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt to taste
  • additional grated Parmesan cheese for topping, optional

Add chicken broth and Italian seasoning to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

Add uncooked rice and spinach to the saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for approximately 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in parmesan cheese. Top with additional parmesan cheese for serving, if desired.
