Easy Red Beans and Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ElizabethKnicely

This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor. Season with hot pepper sauce if you like.

Made 1/2 the recipe for lunch with DH and we both really liked it. Made with beef smoked sausage and diced tomatoes with onions but otherwise used the ingredients listed. I liked the beans and rice together, wasn't sure DH would go for it, but he said her would eat it again! Made for Spring PAC 2014.
