Sausage and Spanish Rice Skillet Dinner

We love one-pan dinners that minimize time spent on clean-up. Our latest uses Spanish rice, a rice, onion, garlic and tomato side dish, as the base with some lean sausages added to make it a meal. Feel free to bump up the hot pepper flakes if you’d like.

Cooking Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). In 10-inch (25 cm) oven-safe frying pan, heat oil over medium heat; cook sausages for 10 minutes, turning one halfway, or until well-browned but not cooked through. Transfer sausage to plate.

2

Return pan to medium-high heat. Stir in onion, garlic and hot pepper flakes; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in saffron threads and tomatoes; cook for 1 minute, stirring. Stir in rice and 2 cups (500 mL) water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer; cook for 5 minutes. Nestle browned sausages into rice mixture. Place in centre of oven; bake for 12 minutes or until sausages are cooked through.

3

Carefully remove pan from oven. Transfer sausages to cutting board. Cut on the diagonal into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; stir back into rice mixture. Divide among four plates. Serve sprinkled with green onions.
