1 cup green onion

Preparation / Directions:

In deep frying pan (cast iron preferably) sauté the bell pepper, garlic, parsley and celery. While this is cooking, add tomatoes and their liquid, the chicken stock and green onion to a pot that can cook on the stove and in the oven (Corning ware). Stir in spices, sautéed vegetables raw rice, sausage and alligator fillet pieces. Cook on medium-high heat until liquid is absorbed (stir occasionally to make sure rice doesn't burn on bottom) and then bake covered in the oven for 25 minutes. Good luck, I done this three times and the usual comment is its superb but where is the alligator..
