I love sausage and peppers so naturally I'm going to try this out. I have a question, though. In the photo, the jambalaya mixture is spooned over the cooked rice. In the instructions, it's implied that the cooked rice is added to the dish and cooked for an additional seven minutes along with the tomatoes and broth. Wouldn't using cooked rice render it almost overcooked? In traditional jambalaya, the rice is added during the cooking process to make something like paella as Zeemer points out. It sounds great, though, whichever way it's served.

While reading the ingredients of this Sausage Jambalaya, I can't help but compare this dish to paella, a Spanish dish made of rice mixed with pork and sea foods. But what is distinct about cajun cuisine is that the sausage is always present in their recipe. Any kind of sausage. This type of food preparation where the meat, sea foods, and vegetables are placed on top of the rice is called toppings where I live which I find a good idea. "Jambalaya, crawfish pie, and fillet gumbo, for tonight I'm gonna see my cheri mio." That's a country song I used to sing when I was in university, and it's good.
