Microwaveable Sweet Onion Pesto Rice recipe

Can you tell I like quick and easy lunch recipes?  :)  And once again, this Sweet Onion Pesto Rice recipe is definitely another favorite of mine that I make quite often.  Like the Sweet Onion Ramen Noodles with Asparagus, the green onions really get sweet and totally delicious!  :)  You honestly could throw anything in this and everyone will enjoy this, young or old!  I’ve has asparagus with this rice and it really adds a yummy crunch!  Also, while I eat it as a stand alone meal in itself, you could also make this as a side to accompany any tasty dish that you may be having.  The best part?  It doesn’t have to be hot to enjoy it.  This dish could be served at room temperature if you’re worried about other dishes in the meal!   ENJOY!
