Turkey Jambalaya

1 tablespoon oil
1 cup onion -- minced
3/4 can celery -- chopped
1/2 cup green pepper -- chopped
2 garlic cloves -- minced
2 cups diced tomatoes -- canned
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mild hot pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups turkey stock
2 cups rice, uncooked
1 pound smoked sausage -- cut in 1/4" slices
2 cups cooked turkey -- chopped

Saute onion, celery, pepper and garlic in oil. Add tomatoes and seasonings; cook on low for 15 minutes. Add all other ingredients, bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer and cook until rice is tender, about 30 minutes.

"This is also good with chopped ham and/or shrimp. If it seems too dry, add a can of tomato sauce (8 ounces) and/or a little water. If you want it to be really spicy add some cayenne pepper or Tabasco sauce.

I have frozen this with fairly good success. If making to freeze, under cook slightly and add water or tomato juice on reheating.

That's my week.  How about you?  Go to for other menu plans every Monday.  Thanks for stopping by.
