Pomodori Ripieni di Riso {Tomatoes Stuffed with Rice}


I’m a big fan of making something new and creative out of leftovers. A take two meal if you will. This is one of those recipes. I use leftover rice or risotto and after infusing it just a bit with fresh herbs it’s then stuffed into beefy flavorful tomatoes. Simple and scrumptious with just about 10 minutes of prep time. And no worries if you want to make this but don’t have any leftover rice,  just whip up a quick batch. This is a vegetarian version but you could easily “beef” it up with your favorite ground meat.
When you’re ready to whip this up you can find my recipe on BETTYCROCKER.COM Where’ I’m now a weekly contributor to the BettyCrocker.Com site. Once a week you’ll find a delicious recipe from me and from time to time , I’ll share them with you here too!

    When the title “tomatoes stuffed with rice” came through my reader, I nearly fainted. And then I DID faint. But now I’m alert and able to function again.

    “A take two meal”–love that phrase!! This looks like it could maybe even be better in its take two form than the original meal…mmmmm…

    What a beautiful recipe. The “beef it up” option sounds wonderful too.

    That sounds nice and easy, and delicious too.

    I think I’d be taking your suggestion and adding in the beef!
