How to make it

  • In a medium pot or rice cooker, place the rice and appropriate amount chicken stock and cook according to your rice pkg. instructions.
  • Place olive oil in a large skillet (that has a lid), and heat on medium high. Add sausage links to the heated pan and brown on all sides, turning frequently.
  • Once the sausage links are browned, remove from pan. Add in onion, peppers, celery, garlic and chili flakes. Turning down the heat if needed, and adding more oil if needed. Stir frequently.(add mushrooms or zucchini if using)
  • Meanwhile, slice sausages in 1/4 inch slices and return them to the pan when the veggies have softened. Add the Italian seasoning, fennel seeds, salt and pepper. Cook until the sausages have browned more.
  • Pour the liquid from the tomatoes into the pan, and scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan. Then stir in the rest of the tomatoes
  • Turn the heat to low, partially place a lid on the skillet and simmer for 5-10 minutes. If the sauce seems too dry, add in a little chicken stock as needed.
  • Remove pan from heat, and add in the cooked rice. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Serve with Parmesan or Romano cheese, and add fresh basil or green onions if desired.

    This is a great recipe!! Very flavorful and could easily be eaten on it's own without rice, and still feel like a meal :) 5 stars for sure! Added more in LindsayB's IMI review below.

    This was so good! I really loved it! I omitted celery as I'm not a big fan, but added some diced zucchini- which was fantastic in it. For tomatoes I used stewed tomatoes that I mushed up a bit. What a delicious meal! I ate till I felt too full cause it was that good! Thank you CosmicMother!

    Wow what a great recipe. I used just over 2 lbs of Italian Turkey Sausages for this recipe. LOL my guys need to see meat and 1 lb would not be enough. In error I had cooked double the and only scooped in what I felt was the correct amount and had lots leftover no I had not measured the amount used. Will be making this recipe again.
