Sausage Jumble

My mom sent me this recipe a long time ago and we just got around to making it. Most of the ingredients were just regular "staples" I had in my kitchen already, so going out and buying a ton of ingredients didn't happen to make this one.

It was very good. I was a little concerned about the sausage as it seemed like kind of an odd pairing with the rest of the ingredients, but it turned out to be super yummy!!

A very "hearty" meal, especially for cooler days!

Sausage Jumble

1 lb. bulk pork sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups fresh or frozen whole kernal corn, thawed
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup uncooked instant rice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese

In a large skillet cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, drain. Add the corn, tomatoes, rice, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until rice is tender. Sprinkle with cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Cook uncovered 5 minutes longer or until cheese melts. Yields 4 - 6 servings.
