Cheryl Landers can easily add a Louisiana entree to her LaTour, Missouri table any day of the week. “I brown the meat, cut up veggies and measure spices the night before, and then assemble and start it cooking the next morning,” she pens. “When I get home, I make the rice…and dinner is served!”

5 people in my family and everyone loved this! I used garlic, sage and basil sausage, took off the casing and cut them into the 1 inch slices. Only had 1 can of black beans so used 2 cans of kidney. I didn't have any bell pepper or thyme so just omitted. I sauteed the onion and celery with the sausage. This is going into our family cookbook that I am creating so my kids have our favorite recipes when they move out in 10 years or so:)
