Recipe by Paula
"This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor. Season with hot pepper sauce if you like."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

YUM. I love this, I skipped the sausage, so I sauted the onion & garlic (two cloves) in a tsp. of olive oil. I also used brown rice, cajun-seasoned diced tomatoes and added about 2 Tbsp. of fresh chopped parsley. Very light & healthy, thanks Paula!
This recipe has quite a good flavor, but I, like Michelle live in Louisiana - and this isn't creole red beans and rice. Like she said, leave out the tomatoes for the traditional version... I added plenty more garlic, a good dose of Tony's (a Louisiana must!), and jalepano-style Tabasco sauce. We like more rice here, as well. Still, this is a good recipe - and a great option when short on time. I'll make it again with the extras :).
This recipe is not like a traditional red beans and rice recipe. I was trying to find one and made this. No tomatoes are in real red beans and rice. I live in Louisiana and these were not even close to how they are served down south. They tasted OK, but I was disappointed in the results.
This is a really great receipe for rice and beans! I am a vegetarian, so I cut out the sausage and sauteed in olive oil. I also added 1/8 tspn. of cayenne to spice it up a little. This dish has an excellent flavor and is one of the better receipes for rice and beans I have come across. Highly Recommended!
Kind of a funky meal. Except for the sausage, the ingredients didn't have much flavour and created a strange texture. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I used 3 clove of garlic and at the end I combined everything including the rice into one bowl. I will not be making this again.
I thought this was very good and super easy to make. I did add some cajun seasoning but the spicy cajun sausage I used provided plenty of "kick." We'll definitely make this again.
WOW, was this good. My husband and I had it for dinner and we both liked it very much. So much so, that we ate it all ourselves. I improvised a little and added one hot green pepper, mushrooms and some extra garlic. It was tasty and had a perfect kick to it. Thanks for the recipe, Paula. I'll be making this again and again.
I liked this. It might not be "authentic" (I have no idea), but it sure was tasty! I only used one can of beans, 1/2 an onion and I used chicken sausage, because that is what I had. I added some extra garlic, too. I combined it with the rice before serving - it was a really filling, satisfying meal. Served it with Jalapeno Corn Bread.
