Italian Inspired Microwave Rice
30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
11 ingredients
4 servings
I threw this together last night to see what I could do with the bits and bobs I had floating around in my fridge. I am not claiming it is at all authentic Italian but the ingredients I had around pointed in that direction. I used jasmine rice because that is what I had around but any long grain should work. My microwave is a 700 watt variety to adjust as needed for your own microwave.
