EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

A few slices of bacon adds a nice smoky flavor to this easy one-dish beef and rice meal. In place of plain diced tomatoes, you can use Italian-style diced tomatoes, tomatoes with garlic or tomatoes with celery and green bell pepper. Chop some fresh herbs that you may have, such as parsley, basil or oregano, or a combination of herbs, and mix into the shredded mozzarella before sprinkling on top of the rice dish.
