This is a favorite of ours because it tastes great and is quick and easy to fix. I omit the oil to lessen the calories and add only 8 oz. of the smoked turkey sausage to the rice mix and water. My husband likes to top his with grated sharp cheddar.

It was okay, but since "the stuff in the box" did most of the work I can't give this one anymore than 3 stars. Followed the directions exactly and will use it again but it's an insult to call this a recipe.

I added strips of onion at the beginning with the sausage, instead of green onion at end. Great recipe!

This recipe is perfect for a quick, easy and inexpensive meal. Next time I would use 2 lbs of sausage, as my family likes more meat with their meal.
