Mediterranean Rice

Do you have that leftover 1/3 jar of tomato sauce always hanging out in your fridge after you make a batch of pasta or ravioli? Don't want to waste it? Don't know what to do with it? This is an easy solution that also tastes great.

1/2 cup dry white rice
2 poblano peppers, diced
1/2 a jalapeno, minced
1/2 a serrano, minced
1/2 a habernero, minced
6 small cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup spinach
1/3-1/2 jar leftover tomato sauce
2/3 jar's worth water
1/4 cup red wine
1 tbl canola oil

Four different kinds of peppers turn ordinary jarred sauce into something special. A little wine goes a long way.

Add all peppers, rice, garlic, wine, oil, water, sauce to a large sauce pot. Cover. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer slowly for 15 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in spinach.
