  1. I made this casserole-except I modified the cayenne pepper. One teaspoon seemed a bit excessive, so I only used 1/4 tsp. That seemed to give it just enough "kick" without being over the top.
  2. This was very good. I make it with brown rice - just check on it from time to time to make sure rice doesn't stick - you may need to add a little water until rice is cooked properly - but its yummy and nutrious.
  3. Great recipe really flavorful. I used mushrooms instead of bell peppers and added only a pinch of black pepper. I used low-sodium broth and I added 1 tsp of salt which was perfect. I also added a tsp of paprika and powdered ginger. One thing I found was that the rice on top of the - Read more ...

  5. WOW!!! We loved this. I took some advice and added a little more chicken broth I also cut down on the cayenne pepper because we used hot sausage (it was still a little hot for some) but the recipe was out of this world. I will be adding this to my regular menu. Go Melissa!

Sauteed this all together then added the rice - Read more ...
  8. A good dish, but I altered it some, and was able to make it MUCH MORE QUICKLY. I used only 16 oz. sausage, and added the garlic and onion during the last few minutes of browning the meat to sautEe them all together. I used a 28 oz. can of DICED tomatoes, undrained, and 1 - Read more ...
