We just had a yummy dinner... Italian Sausage and Bell Pepper Paella. Jason and the kids (and I) really liked it and it was easy. My review is at the bottom.


2 links hot and/or sweet Italian sausage (about 6 ounces total)
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
1 small onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup Arborio or other medium-grain rice or converted rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup drained canned tomatoes, chopped coarse
1 1/2 cups water


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Squeeze sausage meat from casings into a 10-inch heavy ovenproof skillet and add bell peppers, onion, and oil. Cook mixture over moderately high heat, breaking up sausage with a fork and stirring occasionally, 5 minutes, or until vegetables begin to brown. Add rice and sauté, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in wine, tomatoes, and water and bring to a boil, stirring to loosen brown bits. Transfer skillet to oven and bake, uncovered, 25 minutes, or until most liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper.

Yum. I doubled the recipe. If you do this I wouldn't suggest going over 2 1/4 cups of liquid. I used just over 2 cups and it was a little bit dry. I had to add in a bit more at the end, cover, and pop back in the oven for 5 minutes. I added garlic, used Italian seasoned tomatoes and threw in some red pepper flakes for good measure. We topped with fresh parm and there was nothing left at the end of the meal
