Taken from Out of This World CookBook II. I have never tried this! I don't know if it's meant to be a main course on a buffet or for a large family, or just a meaty side dish -- so I'll categorize it as both.
- 2 lbs pork sausage
- 2 large onions, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 bunch celery, chopped
- 2 cups long grain rice
- 1⁄2 cup sliced almonds
- 3 packages dry chicken noodle soup mix
- 9 cups boiling water
- Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
- In a Dutch Oven, over medium-high heat, add sausage, onions, pepper and celery.
- When sausage is browned, stir in rice and almonds.
- In a separate bowl, combine dry soup mix with boiling water; stir well.
- Stir soup mixture into Dutch Oven and combine.
- Cover casserole and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes; uncover and bake for an additional 50 minutes.
- Serves a lot!
This was very easy and it had a great taste. I halved it here on 'Zaar, and here are the other things I did differently: used hot Italian sausage; added garlic and hot pepper flakes; and when adding the rice, I felt that 1 1/8 quarts of water and 1 cup of rice seemed disproportionate, so I added 2 cups of rice. When I took it out of the oven after 40 minutes, it was done and had the right texture, so we called it good and had it as a meaty side dish. Wonderful! And... yes it makes a ton of food, even if you halve it...
excellent taste have made it twice, i freeze it and then it is ready to go up to the trailer for lunch, i added cilantro and mushrooms
This recipe is the same one my Mom made for us for years while we were growing up, except that she called it "Chicken Almond Rice" and used slivered almonds, which give a better crunch. IT IS DELICIOUS, and now my husbands favorite. Shannon T
