Make Your Own: Baked Tomato Risotto

This is another reader recipe!!!!

2 med zucchinni
1 jar spaghettis sauce
1 can chicken broth
1 can sliced mushroom
1 cup arborio rice
2 cups shredded mozz cheese
yellow bell pepper (optional)

preheat oven to 350, spray 3 qt. casserole dish w/ non stick cooking spray
cut zucchinni lenghtwise in half.  cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices.  combine spaghetti sauce, broth, zucchinni, mushrooms & rice in prepared dish.

bake, uncovered, 30 minutes.  remove from oven & stir casserole.  cover & bake 15-20 min. or until rice is tender.  remove from oven; sprinkle evenly w/ cheese.  bake, uncovered, 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  garnish w/ yellow pepper if desired.

This is supposedly a side dish, I used it as a main course.  I added more rice, spaghetti sauce & cheese.  (why not??!!)  & used vegetable broth in place of chicken to make a vegetarian meal (no one knows the difference!  ;) )  It is just delightful!!

Thanks, Jessica!!!
