Spanish Rice
by James Belardo

If you have leftover Pizza Sauce, here’s a good way to make use of it. Since our pizza sauce contains both basil and oregano, we think it’s perfect for this ‘Spanish’ influenced rice.

Ingredients
1 cup brown rice
1 cup Pizza Sauce (try our homemade version)
1.5 cup water
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 red bell Pepper, diced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 tsp turmeric
1-2 bay leaves
1/2 cup Spanish Manzanillo olives
1 – 2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
flat-leaf parsley
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional

Directions
1. Sauté diced red, green bell peppers and optional hot pepper flakes in 2 tbsp olive oil.
