White Bean and Rice Alfredo Skillet

Leave a comment

Tonight we used up some leftover cooked brown rice from the stir fry a couple days ago and an open jar of alfredo sauce leftover from the spicy rigatoni.  I’m not sure of the exact proportions, so I’m just going to list the ingredients and leave it to you to decide how much of each thing you like!  (That’s what’s so nice about cooking – you can play with amounts!)

White Bean and Rick Alfredo Skillet


  • olive oil
  • yellow onion, chopped
  • zucchini, diced
  • red pepper flakes
  • cooked brown rice
  • 1 can cannellini beans
  • alfredo sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder


  1. Saute onions in olive oil until translucent.  Add red pepper flakes and zucchini and cook until it begins to soften.  Add remaining ingredients and stir frequently.
  2. That’s it.  Seriously.

It was actually really good.  We paired it with a salad as usual.  For dessert?  (Which I haven’t had yet – was busy alphabetizing the FINISHED place cards!)  I plan to have some of yesterday’s peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread.  🙂
