  1. Heat and add coconut oil to a skillet for the mushrooms and onions

  2. Season the mushrooms and onions with the salt and pepper - saute and remove

  3. Add pasta sauce to pot and bring it to a  simmer and add basil, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper - stir occasionally

  5. Add the mushrooms and onions to the batch. Reduce the heat to a low setting and stir occasionally

  6. Drain the rice and add it to the pasta sauce and stir

  7. Let it do its’ thing for about 5-8 mins
