1/2 pound Italian sausage
2 cups water
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
Brown sausage in skillet. Drain. Place in slow cooker. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours or until rice is done.
We served this as our main dish instead of a side dish and it was okay. After two hours the rice wasn’t close to being done. There was still a lot of liquid so we transferred it to the stovetop for a few minutes. I thought it would be a little more flavorful. If I was to make it again for a main dish I would double the amount of Italian sausage. That is really what gave it it’s flavor. 2 1/2 stars.
