I got this recipe from Real Simple magazine. I am posting the recipe as published, but when I made it I used Turkey Sausage and Brown Rice. So good DH was checking the skillet for more after we were done!

I have been wanting to make this forever. Muffin Goddess' picture makes this recipe look so tasty. It was Delicious! I thought that it would take longer to make than it did. Also, I found it simple to make. I did make one change - I added fresh crushed garlic. I just love garlic. I think that a little fresh garlic accented the flavors. I hope that I did not offend the author chef! Thank you for this recipe Cybill.
