    I made this recipe last night for dinner. I used turkey sausage, fat free chicken broth, green pepper in place of red (that’s what I had on hand), and added a can of diced tomatoes , and onion. I didn’t have minute rice, so I cooked the brown rice in my rice cooker, and added it at the end. I used the broth to cook the vegetables and allowed it to reduce before adding the rice. Even with these changes , it only took about 30 minutes to prepare, and was oh so delicious. Thank you so very much for the recipe. I will be making this again soon.
