In our family, we eat a lot of rice and pasta. These are staples because the kids will eat them almost every time. For most rice dishes, I can make the rice separately and add it into our main dish as I wish, leaving some to the side for the kids. I always encourage them to eat the main dish but even if they only eat a few bites of veggies or protein, I know their bellies will be filled with delicious grains.

Today I want to share a new delicious, quick and easy recipe that incorporates easy-to-make rice, veggies, and Italian sausage. This recipe is flexible and family friendly. It has great options for the little ones, as well as enough for leftovers for mom and dad's lunch because it reheats beautifully. My best tip on what veggies to include is to just peruse the vegetable section at your favorite grocery and pick what jumps out at you. I was really impressed with the selection of fresh veggies I found at Walmart late on a Sunday evening.

I picked up broccoli, a combo of bell peppers, red potatoes, zucchini, and a huge bushel of parsley. I also wound up with two flavors of Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions Parmesan & Butter and Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions Garlic & Butter. For our recipe I'll be using the Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions Parmesan & Butter, but I made the Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions Garlic & Butter for a simple lunch for the boys and me.

Since it only takes 10 minutes and you only have one bag with flavor already infused, it's super convenient and really good. There is much less mess and I can use them resealable bag over and over since it has 8 servings.

Now, here's what you came for, this recipe is easy and delicious and will only take you about 35-40 minutes start to finish! Most of that time though is just waiting on a timer to ding!
