I dont add the spices to the sausage, I add them to the veggies which you have to cook in layer. Onion, celery and bell pepper. Add about 2 to 3 tbps: Paprika, Garlic powder, Onion powder, Oregano, Thyme. About a pinch or however spicy you like it of Caynne pepper. Black pepper and salt to taste. Also add fresh garlic to the onions. I use Basmatic rice - about one to 1 1/2 cups and about a cup or two of water. You have to really let the water steam away, else you will be serving a watery dish.
