Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium heat; add sausage and cook and stir, crumbling into small pieces, until cooked through and no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove cooked sausage from skillet with a slotted spoon; drain on paper-towel-lined plate. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon rendered fat.

  • Place mushrooms in skillet and cook over medium heat until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer from pan with slotted spoon to plate with sausage.

  • Prepare Knorr® Rice Sides™ - Herb & Butter in skillet according to package directions. Stir dried Italian seasoning into the water; omit additional margarine. Three minutes before the rice is finished cooking, add the peas. When rice is done, stir in cooked sausage and mushrooms. Heat through.

  • Add romaine lettuce and tomatoes; toss lightly. Scoop into serving bowls; top each serving with desired amount of shredded cheese and serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

This recipe was inspired by my surprising discovery of all the pasta with lettuce recipes available, and wanting something warm but really fresh, and with rice instead of pasta.
