Rice,Vegetables, and Chicken Sausage One Pan Dinner

When my husband was in college, he lived off of a dish he called "fodder". It consisted of rice, Polish sausage, frozen veggies, and a whole lot of cheese on top for flavor. Once, we got married, I decided to pay homage to his culinary creation. We've now kicked it up a notch with some seasoning in lieu of cheese, and a preservative free chicken sausage.
