Italian Turkey Sausage and Rice Dinner



1 lb ITALIAN TURKEY SAUSAGE, casings removed, crumbled into small pieces

1 c chopped sweet onion

1 c chopped sweet bell peppers, seeds and ribs removed

1 (26-oz) container tomato pasta sauce

2 c uncooked instant rice


Over medium heat, brown sausage and onions in a large nonstick skillet, breaking sausage into small pieces with the back of a large wooden spoon. Cook until sausage is cooked through and onions are soft, about 7-8 minutes.

Simmer 10-15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.
