I am so excited to partner with my friends at Tuttorosso Tomatoes for today’s recipe. You’ve heard me say it before, and I’ll say it again; I absolutely LOVE their canned tomato products. If you remember, I visited their factories and farms last year, and have grown to know and trust the family, brand, and the products they put out for us consumers. I can honestly say they are the best canned tomatoes I’ve tried, and I’ve done actual taste tests!

There 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes are a pantry staple!

  1. Currently making this and it wasn’t very clear that the rice needed to be uncooked… might want to note that. I cooked my rice and am now hoping I don’t have soup.

  2. Have you ever tried substituting quinoa for the white rice? Also, is the rice uncooked when it goes in the pan?

  3. I always side-eye dishes that claim to be one pot, becuase they’re never as easy as they look and often require other steps. But this one looked promising so I made it, and I’m so glad I did. And I will do it again. It was easy, and actually just one pot, and it was a hit with my husband and my 16 month old.

    I added some extra coconut milk because let’s be real, a quarter cup was never going to be enough, and did heavy measurements on all the spices because again, most recipes are never enough. I also realized that I was out of cardamom as I was measuring spices so I used half the amount of cinnamon instead.

    This one is going in the regular rotation for sure!

  4. I don’t see rice listed in the ingredients, but the method section says to add in rice and cook 1-2 minutes… … (???)
