I changed lots of things in this recipe, and loved it! First, I sauteed one onion and 4 garlic cloves on a pot. I added one large green pepper, a stalk of celery, and a can of tomatoes. To this I added 3/4 cup of rice, and one cup of water. i added two cans of tuna to the mixture. I added a dash of mustard seed, some thyme, some basil, and ground pepper. I let everything simmer for about 40 mins, untill it not longer looked like soup. I served it in a pasta bowl, sprinkled with ground pepper to taste, and salt, and shredded old cheddar cheese. YUM!!! just remember you need lots of pepper!

one word-yuck.



I took someone's suggestion and substituted Uncle Ben's wild rice and then someone else suggested sauteing the onion and garlic first. It turned out pretty well and the kids loved it.
