Easy Smoked Sausage Skillet

  • 2 cups instant rice
  • 1/2 cup shredded
  • Mozzarella cheese

Heat olive oil and garlic in skillet, stir in sausage slices and cook until browned.  Add pepper, onion, broccoli, broth and tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the liquid is absorbed.  In the meantime, prepare rice according to package instructions.  Stir rice into the skillet, sprinkle with cheese and serve.
