N'awlins-Style Rice with Shrimp and Sausage

This hearty flavorful one-dish meal starts by sautéing smoked or andouille sausage with the Cajun/Creole “trinity” -- onion, celery and bell pepper. Like a gumbo, this dish is soupy, so serve in bowls or soup plates. Photo credit: Sandy Coughlin from Reluctant Entertainer.
