This is a wonderfully flavorful rice dish. I modified it just a bit. I used Garcia's Beef Sausage left over chicken and long-grain white rice. While I cooked the rice (2 cups white long grain rice) I sauteed the sausage in a small saute pan. Meanwhile I sauteed onion and pepper in a large sautepan until tender. Then added remaining ingredients except the tomatoes in one pan and simmered. I added the tomatoes in the last 5 minutes. When rice was done I stirred in the rice. Very enjoyable rice dish! And the leftovers make a great fried rice! Read More

The dish was ok but use either homemade chicken broth or a good brand of canned chicken broth in place of the MSG and salt loaded boullion and water. I believe it needs some hot pepper flakes or dash of hot sauce to perk it up. The Italian sausage isn't enough to carry the dish. I would also use more tomatoes fresh if you have them but a good quality canned diced would be fine. Read More

Very tasty and easy to make. I doubled the recipe and used hot italian sausage. I also used petit cut canned tomatoes. I did not have frozen peas in the house so I substituted frozen chopped spinach which my kids like more. Good recipe. Read More

I don't know if I would call this spanish but I would call it delicious. We really enjoyed this. I used 1 can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh as other suggested. Other then that followed recipe exactly. Just great. Read More

I used sun-dried tomato & chicken sausage I had on hand. It added lots of flavor. I added a few cloves of chopped garlic salt & pepper when cooking the onion/chicken mixture. Then I used jasmine rice. When rice was cooked I added a can of drained diced tomatoes. This dinner had lots of flaver & was quick and easy for a weeknight. It was a hit w/ the kids and hubby. Thanks! Read More

oh this was delish! i changed a few things after reading the reviews and looking at the recipe... i added another 2/3 cup of water and bouillon mixture and a small can of tomato paste instead of the tomatoes (the little one doesn't like chunks!) i'm glad for the extra liquid i think it really needed it. i didnt have any peas so i used corn and i think i would prefer the corn. i added some cumin to give it a little more of a spanish flavor. i used lean turkey italian sausage removed the casings and cooked 3 links in the pan until browned before slicing and returning to the skillet. i hate when the casings get gummy or chewy - yuk! all in all i thought this was great: quick and easy one pan good flavor and if you lighten up the sausage it's not all that bad for you either!!

This was pretty good but not great. I used a 14.5 oz. can of Italian style diced tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes and by personal preference left out the green peppers. I also added some garlic salt at the end. Read More

Good idea in theory. In practice I felt some changes would better suite my family. We went more for a southwest flare. I substitute Jalapeno Sausage for the SI. Substitute sweet corn for the peas. Add a little cilantro and paprika instead of thyme. I also highly recommend using stock instead of bullion. A little splash of pepper jack or cheddar when it hits the table made the kids excited.
