Savory Wild Rice Casserole Recipe

Seasoned with sage and tasty pork sausage, this filling rice casserole is a hearty accompaniment to roast turkey, chicken or duck. I especially like the crunch that the sliced water chestnuts add.

"Very tasty! I halve the recipe for just my husband and me, leaving out the sage. I think this works just as well for a main dish or a side."
