Sausage and Rice

I tried this recipe (from Thriftyfun.com) last week with some smoked sausage I picked up pretty cheap.  It got rave reviews all the way around the table!  I, once again, tweaked it.  You can find the original here.

2 lb. Kielbasa sausage
1 can of chunk pineapple and juice
1 large green pepper
3 tomatoes
1 T cornstarch
1 T vinegar
1 T soy sauce
1/2 c preserves (I used pineapple ice cream topping)
2 cups snap peas

Slice kielbasa and then cut slices into quarters and cook in a large covered skillet.  Cut up pepper and tomatoes, add to pan.  In a separate dish, combine cornstarch,vinegar,soy sauce and preserves.  Do not taste test the sauce at this point (icky, trust me!). Simply add it to the pan with sausage and veggies.  Now add the pineapple and the juice from the can and stir.  Here I added about 2 cups snap peas. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes on low -medium.  Serve over hot white rice.  Enjoy!

Another spin to this...and I make it all the time in the fall/winter: sausage, canned new potatoes, green beans. I make this to bring to pot luck dinners-cheap and oh so good!
I like the way this recipe has pineapple- might have to try that
