Sausage with Red Beans and Wild Rice

The Menu:
Sausage with Red Beans and Wild Rice



The Original Recipe:
I have been wanting to make red beans and rice for awhile now. I saw this recipe and decided it would be a good start. The way I made it my own is below, as I added red beans to this dish. It was delish!


Sausage and Wild Rice


(from Cooking Light Super Fast Suppers)


½ lb reduced sausage

2 small onions diced

2 c water

1 (6.2 oz) package fast cooking long grain and wild rice (I used Uncle Ben’s)

½ t dried oregano

¼ t crushed red pepper

1 c frozen green peas



Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add sausage and cook until brown, remove from pan. Cook onion until caramelized, add water to pan and bring to a boil. Add rice, season packet, oregano, red pepper and return to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook until water is absorbed (~ 4min). Stir in sausage and peas and heat through



The Way I Made It My Own:
My family absolutely LOVED this dish. After each bite they kept saying "wow, this is really good" I will defentaly make this again.
