I can't get enough of using my fresh crops to come up with great tasting recipes.  This tasty feast includes fresh canned Tomato Sauce and infused Olive Oil using vegetables and herbs from my own garden.  Freshly grown vegetables will make any dish taste and even look so much better. This recipe will serve four, but be sure to make plenty.  The leftovers are just as tasty.  Add fresh garlic bread, or warm tortillas to the meal.

2 Cups White Rice
2 Tbs Olive Oil infused with garlic and chillies
1 Small Green Pepper diced
1 1/2 Cup Minced Onion

1 14.5 oz Can  (or 3 cups) of Tomato Sauce w/Roasted Garlic and Chilies
2 Tablespoons Tomato with Chicken bullion
1 1/4 Cups water
2 Tablespoons fresh Cilantro
2 Links Smoked Medium Spicy Summer Sausage
3 Cups Salad Shrimp
Fresh Ground Pepper

Heat olive oil in a sauce pan.  Add rice stirring constantly until rice is no longer translucent.  Turn heat to a low temperature and add chopped green pepper and onion.  Allow vegetables to saute with rice for no more than 2 minutes.  Add tomato sauce, water, bullion, cilantro and sausage.  Let simmer covered for 10 minutes before adding shrimp and pepper.  TIP:  You probably won't need salt.  The bullion has enough to flavor the dish.  Add more water if needed.  Cover and simmer stirring occasionally for another 10 minutes of until rice is done.  Cool for 5 minutes for before serving to allow broth to completely thicken.
