Made-up Gumbo

I love southern food. I especially love spicy Cajun food. I have a jar of Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning that, even after 10 years, still has quite the kick to it. We had some spicy sausage in the freezer just aching to be combined with some fresh veggies, a little rice, and some appropriate spices. Here's what we got.

10 sausage links cut into 1/2 inch rounds (use your favorite flavor -- but they need to be brat-sized)
4 cloves of minced garlic
2 medium onions, chopped
3 Tbs olive oil
5 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 qt stewed tomatoes
3/4 C uncooked rice
1 Tbl Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (or similar Cajun spices)
2 medium zucchini, chopped

In a large, deep fry pan or stock pot, saute garlic and onions in the oil over medium high heat.

Add chopped tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, rice, and sausage.

Add Mix well and bring to a boil.

Reduce to low heat, add the cajun spices, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Chop zucchini and add to pan.

Simmer for an additional 10 minutes.

Serve hot.
