One of my ‘what do I have in the cupboard’ dinners 😉 It can be fun to see what I can come up with in a few minutes time!
Pesto Sausage Rice
1 cup long grain rice (I used Jasmine)
1 large sweet onion, diced
3 chicken sausages, cubed small (I used sun dried tomato/provolone cheese ones)
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
3 Tbsp pesto sauce
1/4 tsp diced dried garlic or 1 diced clove
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
Coat a heavy large saucepan with cooking spray. Cook the onions, sausage and garlic over medium heat till golden. Add in the broth, rice, pesto and pepper. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to low, cover tightly and cook for 20 minutes. I stirred it after 5 minutes to avoid rice crusting on the bottom.
Stir and fluff up the pilaf, then mix in the cheese and let melt.
