“This rice dish is very tasty! You may use more or less than 1 pound of sausages if desired, I just use 1 can for the 1-1/2 cups of sliced mushrooms for this recipe, but 2 cans can be used if desired. This dish is ready in about 1 hour from oven to table. Make sure you use a very large oven-proof frypan or a oven-proof pot to make this in, as it is placed in the oven to finish baking.”
