Savory Italian Sausage rice is simple and delicious. The type of sausage use is entirely up to you. I really like a sausage that's savory and zippy. In other words, something that has a kick to it. The veggies are also a matter of personal choice. It is important, however, to add the tomatoes, green onions, and celery at the end of the cooking process as they add a sense of freshness.
