Mushroom & Sausage Wild Rice w/Pecans & Raisins

Tammy Raynes


I use Minute Rice in this recipe. I found that it holds its shape better during prolonged cooking than regular long-grain rice.

Serve this over a little Sauteed Spinach for a quick supper. Just put this on to cook in the morning before you go to work and it's ready for you for lunch.
