    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.

    This was very simple and good. My husband loves Italian Sausage, so this was a must try. I'd printed the recipe awhile ago, and finally got around to trying it. The origial recipe from before called for 2 cups of Minute or instant rice, so I used instant brown rice. After 8 hours, I put it in uncooked and it took slightly longer than 20 minutes to cook. The dinner has a little kick to it, but isn't overwhelming. Thanks!


I come from a very Polish family with 5 brothers and a sister. I love to cook just about anything Polish and I'm pretty good at cleaning out the refridgerator and making something worth eating. Just got married on 07/07/07, so I would love to get some Just for 2 dinner menus. Finally enjoying the wonderful California weather. I haven't started baking, but I'm really excited to get back into the contests here. <br> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <br><img src=> <br> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br> <br>
