SWAPS

You can easily switch up the meat, use ground beef or ground turkey. If you don’t have beef broth you can use chicken broth.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This dish is really easy to make and of our favorites!

Step 1
In large skillet, brown sausage, onion and garlic over medium heat for about 4-6 minutes. Next add in peppers, Italian seasoning and pepper. You may have to drain the fat off of the meat you use, I did’t have to with this sausage.

Step 2
Cook until peppers are beginning to soften, then add both cans of diced tomatoes and beef broth, mix well and bring to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling add in your uncooked rice and continue to boil for another minute or two, then turn down heat, cover and let simmer for 30-35 minutes.

Step 3
I did stir this a few times to ensure the rice was mixed in well with the juices and cooking. Also you will have to check to make sure your rice is cooked, times may vary.  Top with cheese if you desire.

Notes:
To make this process easier use precooked rice, you will need 2 cups of cooked rice. I would  bring mixture to a boil, let simmer for 25 minutes then add the precooked rice. You could also make rice on the side and serve this dish over rice. Either way it will still be delicious!

I can’t find Italian Style diced tomatoes, what can I use?

They may not say “Italian style” but they are made with basil and oregano. Look for those.

We don’t like onions, can I leave them out?

I think that would be fine!
