Italian Sausage & Rice

Here is a simple recipe that I kind of threw together myself. I think I saw something similar somewhere & I thought, hey that would be better if you used this & added this.... It's quick, tasty, & makes quite a bit. Since there is just the two of us at home now, it leaves us plenty leftover to freeze for later super quick meals.

Italian Sausage & Rice

1/2 Italian Sausage, sliced (freeze the other half for the next time you want to make this)
1/2 large bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, sliced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 can Italian diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon minced garlic (or to taste)
1 cup instant white rice
1 cup instant brown rice
Saute the onion, celery, bell pepper & garlic with either a little butter or olive oil, until veggies are tender. Add your sausage, tomatoes & chicken broth & bring to a boil. Once boiling add in your rice, cut the heat down to simmer, cover & cook for about 10-15 minutes. Stirring occasionally. You'll know when it's done, it'll thicken up.
That's it! Enjoy!

Too bad the Knight doesn't eat rice... Wonder what it would do with wheat noodles?
