"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

SAUTE sausage and add shrimp and cook until pink. Next saute onions, celery, bell pepper, green onions and garlic in the butter until soft.
MIX with raw rice, pour in stock and stir in remaining ingredients. Mix together well until the dish is uniformly blended.
