About This Italian Sausage And Rice Casserole Recipe
This recipe is an extension of the Sausage Cabbage Skillet recipe. The two dishes’ flavor characteristics are distinct, but both also provide the peace and comfort I’m looking for in a meal on a busy weeknight. If you prepare your dish carefully, this rice, sausage casserole will be ready in just 30 minutes.
Italian Chicken Sausage
Italian sausage is made of various ingredients, and you may pick your meat range. The extra taste is an added benefit while using this food in a short casserole. To hold cooking time to a minimum, you can use pre-cooked, thinner chicken sausages to supplement the thicker pork sausage.
Use Raw Hot Dogs
If you choose, you may use raw hot dogs, slice them, break them into tiny parts and strip their wrappings. Ensure that the sausage bits are thoroughly cooked so that they do not take much longer than the rest of the recipe.
The fruity sweet-smelling dish consists of jalapeno pepper and rice mixture. Peppers produce various vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and vitamin A, folate, and potassium.
In addition to the normal fried rice part, you can also include brown rice in the dinner. It is higher in fiber and nutrients than white rice. When you make the sauce in the skillet with the other ingredients, it is already heated, so you don’t need a separate skillet.
Rice cooked in chicken broth looks stronger than rice that is soaked in water. You can prefer low-sodium ingredients, so the Casserole doesn’t get too salty.
Brown, the sausage slice in a broad non-stick pan, then transfers the slices to a tray. Start to cook the onion, bay leaf, and pepper. Add the rice, garlic, and red pepper flakes, and stir it all together. After cooking until the potatoes are tender and fragrant, add the broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil over medium heat and occasionally mix for a few minutes. Next, cook the sausages and extract them from a heat source. Let stand the rice in a pot covered for a few minutes before the rice is tender. Sprinkle with parsley and feed the visitors.
