Cooking Directions

Broil or grill sausage until browned, keep warm. Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet with tight-fitting lid, saute ham, onion and garlic in oil until lightly browned, about 2-4 minutes. Stir in all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Serve immediately with grilled sausage.
