  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and green bell pepper in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir garlic into vegetables and cook until fragrant and softened, about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir kielbasa sausage, tomatoes with juice, water, paprika, oregano, thyme, and hot sauce into onion mixture, bring to a boil, and stir in orzo. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until orzo are tender, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may also want to brown the sausage before adding it to all the other ingredients. It is still excellent without browning first, though.

I love this recipe! so quick and easy. I followed the recipe exactly and added the cooked shrimp and people are amazed I made it. looks way more complicated than it really is.

This was wonderful and one of the easiest recipes I've tried. Like Lea, I skipped the orzo as I don't keep it on hand and served the rest over brown rice instead. Yummy! I'll definitely make t...
