A complete meal with incredible flavour and texture that just snap in your mouth. Another one-pot wonder that is served casserole-style! A cosy dish with cheesy sausage, rice, Italian chicken, with a pop of colours thanks to bell peppers.

My forever weakness, creamy, cheesy rice, and sausage. My week will not be complete without this outrageously mouthwatering dish. I cannot show you enough my love for this sausage and rice casserole. It is easy, satisfying, and one heck of a meal!
