Combine onion and olive oil in large, wide skillet with tight-fitting lid. Cook, stirring, over low heat until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in rice, dried tomatoes and rosemary. Cook and stir 1 minute over low heat. Add broth and salt. Bring to boil over high heat, stirring once. Cover and cook over low heat until liquid is absorbed, abotu 15 minutes.

Using 1/4 cup measure, form rice mixture into small pancakes about 2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. To keep rice from sticking to hands, rinse hands frequesntly with cold water. Coat large, non-stick skillet or griddle with a thin film of olive-oil. Heat over medium heat. Add pancakes in batches and cook until golden brown on one side, about 5 minutes. Carefully turn pancakes, using wide spatula, and brown other side. (Keep warm in oven on lowest setting until all are done). Recommended side dishes: Escarole with Garlic, Roasted Peppers
