Need a fast, nutritious dinner for your family on busy days? This Asian sausage and veggie casserole is easier than the drive thru!
Yesterday, we were making the six hour drive home from a family function, and knowing that it would be dinner time when we got home, we stopped in at Kroger to pick up some smoked sausage and frozen veggies.
And that, my friend, is the story of how the easiest one-pot dinner casserole I have ever made come to be.
Seriously, Hillshire Farm’s Smoked Sausage + frozen stir-fry veggies made dinner a breeze, and I am alllll about the easy, quick dinners what with a busy summer season coming on!
I literally poured some rice into a casserole dish, layered the sausage and veggies over it, sprinkled with a few asian seasonings, added water, and popped it into the oven, then proceeded to unload the car of all our camping gear while it baked for 25 minutes.
It seems a little silly now, but making a nutritious dinner made me feel like I’d accomplished something significant that day – even though I’d been sitting in a car for most of it!
- I made my casserole in the oven, but for an even quicker cooking time, you can layer everything in a large pot and boil until the rice is tender.
- You meat lovers can easily double the amount of sausage in the recipe for a meatier dish
