My kids (12 & 15) loved this recipe. I made a big mistake, though, I foolishly didn't drain the sausage afer browning--consequently the finished product came out very, very greasy. Also, I didn't cook the sausage for only 5 mins--it was still very pink--which scares me w/pork--I cooked it until it was completely brown. I will definited make this agin.

would make this again - next time i would go ahead and continue to cook everything right in my deep frying pan (for about an hour) - cut down lots of time... just make sure you fry the sausage good enough ...

I have made a very similar recipe for years and handed out the recipe countless times variation doesn't take as much time and will be less salty/less fat as it doubles the recipe and still uses only 1 pound of sausage..I use it as a side dish instead of a main dish.My variation follows: Cook 1 pound of sausage(I like JImmy Dean Sage) in large skillet with chopped onion,bell pepper and celery until sausage is brown..drain off fat. Meanwhile, bring 4 1/2 cups of water to a boil, add 1 cup regular (not minute) rice and 2 packages Liptons Chicken Noodle with white meat soup mix...simmer for 20 minutes. Mix all together, add a jar of chopped mushrooms if desired..its ready to go.

We loved this! Unfortunately, it barely made enough for all of use so next time, I will have to double the recipe. I did add some fresh sliced mushrooms and a little more celery. I don't think it really matters what kind of sausage you long as you know you like it. Will make this again and again. Very EASY recipe!

Although this recipe takes a long time to cook....the prep time is fairly short. It is a wonderful recipe family loved the taste and went back for seconds. One hint though...spray the casserole dish with non stick spray to avoid all the noodles and rice sticking. I will definately make this again.

I made this for Christmas dinner, and prepared it the day before so I wouldn't be stuck in the kitchen all day! Aside from chopping and cooking the sausage, it is such a simple recipe! It was delicious, everyone wanted the recipe!

This recipe is easily converted to make it very quick to prepare, I use 1-2 tbs dry minced onion, substitute sliced waterchestnuts for the celery, add a small drained can of sliced mushrooms and eliminated the green peppers. The first time I made this it stuck to the pan so I greased the pan with shortening and used the browned sausage as the bottom layer, no more sticking.
