Semi-homemade Jambalaya

Sandra McGrath


As I find myself always so busy with work I have less time to cook and am always looking for ways to cut prep time.This recipe uses frozen peppers and onions and pre-packaged seasoned rice mix.The aroma while it was in the oven was wonderful and if you get up early to cook like I do it will get the others up too to check out what's cooking!
