Red Beans and Rice

I know, we eat a lot of beans here.  I just can't get enough of them. I probably have 50 recipes with beans, each recipe just a bit different from the next.  Yet, each delicious in their own way.

This one has sausage. Sausage rocks. It really makes this dish. 

The addition of sausage really pleased the husband as well.  Everyone really loved this. I know I'll be making it again.
