Sausage and Rice Skillet
This recipe is fun because you can use a variety of ingredients that you have in your refrigerator and pantry, coming up with a new creation each time you make it.
Start by drizzling a little bit of olive oil in your pot and turn your stovetop on to medium heat. Add chopped onion, diced mushrooms and bell pepper strips to the pot. Sautee until the ingredients have softened.
Add in slices of fully cooked sausage. This can be an Italian-based chicken sausage, Greek feta and spinach sausage, etc. You usually get anywhere from four to six sausages in one package. Also, add in a package of frozen, cooked rice. You can use brown rice, jasmine rice or basmati.
Cook until the rice is thoroughly heated through.
Turn taco Tuesday into a much easier weeknight meal.
Start by browning some ground beef in a skillet on medium heat. You can substitute ground turkey if you’re looking for a healthier option. Add in some chopped onion and green bell peppers. If you’re looking for a little heat, add diced jalapenos.
You can build off this base any way that you want. Add in some canned black beans, rice or diced tomatoes.
Towards the end of cooking, tear up some soft tortilla shells (corn or flour) and combine into the mixture. Mix in a can of enchilada sauce or a jar of salsa. You can serve this recipe with a scoop of sour cream.
Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup
In a large stock pot on medium heat, sauté some loose Italian sausage with a drizzle of olive oil. You can also include onion and bell peppers, diced very small. Do not drain the sausage.
Once the sausage is cooked, add in two large cartons of chicken stock, one small can of diced tomatoes, one small can of tomato paste and a little salt and pepper.
Let the soup simmer for 20 to 30 minutes before adding frozen or packaged tortellini. You can serve when the pasta is soft and cooked all the way through.
