Make It Monday - Jambalaya

Photobucket
Today's recipe is a mix of one my Mom made growing up and a few added touches of my own. My mother served an LDS mission to the great state of Louisiana. While she was there she fell in love with the food. She brought home a delicious Jambalaya recipe and it's been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. This past week I had some homemade smoked sausage and decided to revamp this Jambalaya and make this dinner. It's so filling and perfect for a quick evening dinner.
 Here's my recipe, enjoy!
