Sausage, Veggie, Rice Pot

When I was making this recipe the other day, I was remembering that back in the 50's and 60's we would have called this a "One Dish Dinner", and today we call it a One Pot Meal. We just added a great Green Tossed Salad with some Garlic Bread and it was awesome.  This recipe has wonderful southern flavors and goes together really fast so you can get it on the table for a hungry family.  I think it was even better the next day, it is really one of those recipes that you will want to make over and over.
