  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions, plus more to garnish if desired
  • 2 2/3 cups chicken broth (use vegetable broth for a vegetarian dish)

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 2 quart baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Met butter in a large skillet. Stir in rice, mushrooms, bell pepper, Italian seasoning and green onions. Stir and cook until the mushrooms are tender.
