1/1 Photo of Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya

Vino Girl's Note:
This is a recipe I developed by combining a few together, and it is one of my husband's favorite things that I make. If I am eating this, I cook the sausage on the side. At the end, I pull out a portion of jambalaya for myself and add the sausage to the rest for everyone else. Keep an eye on it after you add the rice. The jambalaya recipes I've used in the past don't add water, but I usually have to add some so the rice has enough liquid to absorb.
