Cheesy Italian Rice Skillet
For me it always seems as the temperature gets colder outside, the spicier my food gets inside. Spicy food doesn't actually keep you warm, but it does make you feel a bit toastier on the inside. This is a super easy dish that can be made as spicy as you like it. Not only does it have great flavor, it has very few ingredients and can be made in just a matter of minutes. This is perfect for a chilly night's dinner.
1 lb Italian Sausage
1 clove of garlic, chopped finely
1 14 oz can Italian Diced Tomatoes
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
2 to 2 1/2 cups of rice
1 cup Mozzarella, divided
Brown the sausage in a skillet until it is no longer pink. I drained off the grease, but it is optional. Then add in the garlic. Saute this for just a quick minute. Then add in the tomatoes.
After you have added the tomatoes, sprinkle over the Italian seasoning and let this simmer for about 10 minutes.
After the sause has simmered for a bit, taste it to see if it needs salt and pepper or even some hot red pepper. Then stir in about half of the cheese.
Serve this with a nice salad and you will dinner ready in no time!
