Your Mom's recipe is delicious, easy to make and a crock pot recipe is always good in hot or cold weather. The aroma is wonderful. I bought my Sausages from a butcher shop that I had not tried before and they were quite fatty-My advise is to know your sausage. I had to remove the fat with one of those defatting gizmos (not the fault of the recipe). All was well again. I found that 6 hours on low was fine. I used basmati rice (not instant or minute rice) that I had soaked all day in water. Added it and the tomatoes to cook for a final hour. The basmati soaked up the liquid and had a lovely flavor. Next time I may leave the sausages whole and cook the rice separately serving it with the lovely sauce & sausages over it. Either way it is a very easy tasty recipe thanks Bippie for posting it

This is so good for the few ingredients it requires. I did not have tomatoes with green peppers so I added about 1/4 cup chopped green peppers with a little over an hour to go. I added 1 3/4 instant the last 30 minutes. Turned out great. My DH loved it. Best part about takes about 10 minutes to prep.
