Sausage Rice

In a hurry, as usual, I came across a recipe for Sausage Rice over atFull Bellies, Happy Kids. Since I had all the ingredients on hand I decided to try it. It was quick and easy and since I used our favorite sausage, we all liked it.

Sausage Rice
Recipe from Full Bellies, Happy Kids

2 tbps olive oil
1 bay leaf
1 tsp garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
1 small can tomato sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb sausage, sliced (now here you can use ANY sausage you like even sliced hotdogs)
1 1/2 cups of rice
3 cups of water

In a pan over medium heat, add oil, bay leaf, garlic, salt and pepper, tomato sauce and onion. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender....add the sausage and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes.

Add the rice and the water to the pan, reduce the heat to low and cook for about 20 minutes or until rice is done.

I usually check often to make sure that there is still enough water or if needed I add just a little more, I want the rice to be cooked but I also want a bit of the sauce to stay, so I don't want it completely dried up.

Remove the bay leaf and serve, along with a salad or some veggies.

Rice is one of my favorite ingredients because it is so easy to make and very filling. Nice recipe! :)

Now this looks good - I love sausage and I love rice...why not mix them together? clever!

This does look great. I'd bet this would be just perfect with chorizo and possibly a little green salad on the side...
