Sausage & Rice Casserole

1 lb. sausage
1 med. onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup uncooked rice
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet brown sausage, onion and bell pepper until done. Drain. Add soup, water, rice, salt & pepper. Cook, mixing well for 4-5 minutes. Pour into a casserole dish sprayed with non-stick spray, cover with a lid or foil and bake 25-30 minutes or until rice is done.

Changes - Add a little heat by adding crushed red pepper. Add celery, mushrooms or almond slivers for a little crunch. And of course you can always top with cheese during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Just make sure you take the lid or foil off during that time so the cheese can brown slightly.

Martha, this looks like a recipe I use to make all the time and had forgotten about.
