Chop and add in four tomatoes. Cook for 10 minutes more on medium high. Season with Cajun or Creole seasoning to taste. Pull sausage out and set aside. Add in 3 cups liquid to the pan – water or broth or mixture of both. Bring to a boil. Add 1 1/2 c. rice. Stir in, lower heat to simmer and add sausage back in.

I ate my sausage with some of the fun mustard I found at the store today.

Or, if you prefer, you can mix it in with the rice, which is what the kids did.
