Another great, light, oh-so-good slow cooker recipe. If your kids are hesitant, tell them the sausage is "hot dog" in spaghetti sauce. It's all in the marketing...sometimes.
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 red pepper, finely chopped
2-3 stalks celery, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1-28 oz can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1-16 oz (or similar size) package of smoked turkey sausage
1 T parsley flakes
1/2 t dried thyme
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 - 1 t red pepper sauce (we use 1t, but use it to taste...you can always add more at the table)
1 pound frozen, cooked, peeled shrimp, thawed
3-4 cups of cooked brown rice
1. Mix all ingredients except shrimp and rice into the slow cooker, cooking on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
2. Stir in shrimp and rice, and stir well. Turn slow cooker to high and cover for about 15 minutes to allow everything to be thoroughly warmed.
Now I am off to whip this recipe together for our dinner tonight!
