1 medium (or half of a large) onion, chopped

14 ounce can diced tomatoes

8 ounce package ready-to-serve rice

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper (alternatively, use a seasoned salt)


Cook sausage over medium heat in a skillet, breaking it up as it browns. when no longer pink, remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.

In the same pan, add the oil, and warm it over medium heat. Add the zucchini and onion, cook and stir five minutes or so, until tender.

Stir in the cooked sausage, tomatoes, rice, garlic, salt and pepper.

Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for five minutes to help meld flavors.
