First, you’ll want cook your rice. I grabbed a small saucepan and had it simmering away while I made everything else. Timing is key, but if you do everything it the right order, it’ll be done when you need it.
Next, brown the sausage. I used kielbasa, however, andouille would work well too. Get it nice and crispy, then spoon it off to a plate for later.
Season and saute the peppers, onion, and garlic, get them nice and tender (I find half of a red bell pepper and half of a yellow bell pepper is perfect- we tossed the leftovers in these noodles later in the week). Again, once the veggies are cooked, spoon them off and save them for later.

Now comes the fun part! Add your tomato paste, then the chicken broth, then whisk, whisk, whisk! Once the mixture bubbles and thickens add the paprika and cayenne, then the rice. Stir EVERYTHING together, then add a pinch of freshly chopped parsley.
That’s it! You’re done! Easy, right? We’ve added peas to this dish to up the veggies and it was just as delicious. The next time you’re on the hunt for a quick, flavorful & filling meal, give this recipe a try!
