This recipe started out as "black beans and rice" but evolved one night when I was out of the more classic ingredients for that dish. We're not sure what this is..other than a one-dish delish!
- 1 lb smoked sausage, sliced 1/2 inch thick pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup red bell peppers or 1⁄2 cup orange bell pepper, chopped
