Hearty Sausage and Rice Skillet
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Updated review: After making some changes, I'm updating my review to a full 5-stars. I doubled the spinach and found that amount to be perfect. Instead of corn, I used steamed baby carrots (maybe about 4oz), which provided a little crunch. I did the full amount of chili powder this time as well. The diced tomatoes I used were "fire-roasted" which I think added in an extra flavor. I also tried out the new Johnsonville Flame Grilled Fully Cooked Italian Sausage, and they were very yummy in this! I halved the recipe again and still found that this was easily 5 servings. Previous review: I cut the recipe in half for just me and my husband and we got about 4 servings out of it easily (and they weren't small servings). So if you do the full recipe you may get more than the advertised 5 servings (just FYI). I also used regular diced tomatoes without the chilies and omitted half of the chili powder (1/4 tsp) because I can't eat spicy food. I also just used precooked Polish kielbasa, and just started by sauteing the onion and pepper in olive oil (also omitted mushrooms...yuck). Next time I'll try adding more chili powder, adding more baby spinach (it definitely needed a bit more) and maybe adding corn to give it more of a sweet crunch. Otherwise, this was a great recipe, and pretty easy too! My husband went back for seconds.
Quick and easy to prep. Very tasty, will definitely add to dinner rotation.
My family loves this recipe. Even my very picky son.
I followed the recipe 'exactly' as it was written, the first time I made it. It was very tasty, but the next time I made it, I added a clove of finely minced garlic into Step #1, and I also used (low sodium) chicken broth in Step #2, instead of plain water, Also, I used brown rice, because that's what I always use. Both dishes were very tasty, so thanks for a terrific recipe! I'll definitely be making this dish again & again, since we all loved it.
It was a bit spicy for me, but my husband loved it!
This was delicious; even better the second day.
I've made it twice now and it's a definite winner! I've shared it with friends and they also give it rave reviews. Quick, easy, and delicious.
Delicious and very easy!! Comfort food!
