Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 30 mins

Total Time: 40 mins

Serves: 4


  • 1 pound of ground pork sausage
  • 1 cup of uncooked white rice
  • One 15-ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup of water
  • ½  cup of chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium sliced zucchini (optional)


  1. Pour the oil into the bottom of a large skillet heated on medium-high. Swirl it around until the pan is well coated.
  2. Add the pork sausage to the skillet and break it up. As the sausage browns, turn the heat down to medium-low.
  3. If there is excess oil after the sausage browns, drain all but a tablespoon because you need some oil to help cook the onions and add flavor. 
  4. Add the onions and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent. 
  5. If you want to add the sliced zucchini, add it now. Sauté for about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in the tomatoes. Mix well.
  7. Add the rice, water, salt, and pepper. Stir. Turn the heat down to low.
  8. Cover and continue to cook for about 20 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  9. Serve hot.
