Cook the sausage in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Add the mushrooms, celery, pepper, onion, thyme, marjoram and the seasoning packet from the rice blend to the skillet and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
Stir the sausage mixture, broth, soup, rice blend and 1/2 cup cheese in a 3-quart shallow baking dish. Cover the baking dish.
Bake at 375°F. for 1 hour or until the sausage is cooked through and the rice is tender. Stir the sausage mixture before serving. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Nice taste and textures
Really enjoyed the flavors in this recipe. Agree with a previous review that it was a little salty. Used sodium reduced broth and used mildly spiced sausage meet. My husband says its a definite make again :).
Perfect easy go-to meal!
This was very quick and easy meal to make. Taste wonderful. Can be used as a meal or a side dish. Making for the 2nd time and will be a family favorite for sure.
4 clean platers!!!
I doubled the recipe except for the sausage, used my left over rice and all four college students loved it. It will definately show up on the table again.
Hearty Sausage & Rice Casserole
Very filling and a huge crowd pleaser
As a 53 year old male, I chose all sodium free or low sodium ingredients assuming the pork sausage and cheese would provide enough "salt" in the recipe.
I was right. Though, as a male, next time I will use 1-1/2 to 2 pounds sausage and twice as much cheese to make it heartier. Otherwise, this is yummy and I recommend it.
