Paula Deen's Savannah Red Rice

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Scrivener1

I love this recipe! The rice is flavorful and just slightly spicy. I have typed it exactly as written. However, when I make it, I sautee the (sweet italian) sausage first without any butter or oil, and then I add the onion and bell pepper. I always buy a local brand of sausage and I never add salt to dishes with tomatoes in them.

We really enjoyed this rice and thought it was very flavorful. Used rotello tomatoes and added 1/2 cup celery.
