Me Oh My Oh! Jambalaya!

Amy Herald


I love this recipe. Its the Rachel Ray recipe for jambalaya with a few minor changes to suit my family's taste. I especially love Rachel's idea of putting the rice on top with an icecream scoop which makes this a really attractive and unique version of this traditional Cajun dish!
