Sausage, Zucchini, and Tomatoes over Rice

29 Sep

I had been intending to make egg rolls, but still hadn’t had a chance to get everything I needed.  So, I needed a quick dinner using something else I had on hand.  I had bought Italian sausage and some zucchini that was on sale over the weekend, so I decided to make a dinner I haven’t made in a long time, sausage, zucchini, and tomatoes over rice.  My good friend and former neighbor introduced me to this dinner and we love it!  Plus, it really is quite easy.

Note: This is 2 packages of sausage since I have 3 adults and 2 kids in the house to feed.

What you need:

1 package of Italian sausage, mild or hot, depending on your taste
1-2 zucchini, diced
1 can flavored tomatoes, I use basil, garlic, and oregano diced tomatoes
Cooked rice

Remove the casings from sausage and break up.  Cook until all the sausage is browned.  Add in zucchini, cook about 5 minutes, or until it becomes tender.  Add in the can of diced tomatoes, and let simmer for 5-10 minutes.  Serve over cooked rice.
