Recipe #4 - Hearty Sausage and Rice Casserole

 This recipe is exactly what it says it is - hearty!  I loved the mix of vegetables that are added at the beginning.  Long grain and wild rice is always good too.  I used a mild Italian sausage, and I wouldn't do that in the future.  I think a good sage sausage would be better and add more flavor variety to the meal.

The hubby enjoyed the meal, but he noted he'd like more rice and less sausage.  My two finicky boys opted for mac-n-cheese instead.  Middle son did say he liked everything in it except the sausage, so a different meat, maybe even ground beef, might be a better choice.

It's easy to put together and makes for a good comfort food.  This is definitely not low calorie.  Turkey sausage would be a good alternative; they didn't have any at the store when I went.
