Spicy Italian Sausage & Rice Skillet

Author Larisha Campbell


  • 1 package Italian Sausage mine was slightly over 1 lb
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes drained (**if you prefer a sauce, I would only drain 1/2 the can)


  1. Grease a medium pan with cooking spray and turn to medium high heat.
  2. Add the sausages and let brown on each side. Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and cover for 7-10 minutes on until water has evaporated.
  3. Remove the sausages.
  4. In the same pan, respray lightly with cooking spray, and add the chopped onions and peppers to the pan, cooking for 5-7 minutes on medium heat, turning occasionally to allow for even cooking. While the onions and peppers are cooking chop the sausages into bite size pieces.
  5. Return the cut sausages back to the pan and add the can of tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium and cook for an additional 7-10 minutes or until everything has heated through.
  6. Serve over rice.
