One Pan Leftover Veggies and Rice

Do you have a leftover veggie you have to use? Here's a perfect way to use it up with a one pot meal... two if you don't have a container of leftover rice handy. So simple and good.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 5 people


  • 1 pkg Ground Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage
  • 5 1/3 cups Leftover vegetables (for instance peppers, carrots, or snap peas) chopped
  • 1 tbsp chicken bouillon to taste
  • 2 cups water to preference
  • leftover rice to preference


  1. Cook the ground sausage, breaking it up as you go until no longer pink.

  2. While cooking see if you need to chop your vegetables smaller.

  3. Once the sausage is done add your vegetables.

  4. If there isn't enough water in the pan then add some for the vegetables. I added 2 cups and then added a tablespoon of chicken bouillon for extra flavor.

  5. Once the vegetables are done add the precooked rice.

  6. Stir and heat thoroughly.

  7. Dish and serve.
