Ingredients:  
1 lb. sweet Italian sausage
1 - 1 1/4 c. rice
1 med. onion - chopped
1 c. margarine
1 c. flour
6-8 c. chicken broth
1 c. heavy cream
1 c. mushrooms - optional

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook the rice and set aside. Cook the sausage, breaking into small pieces as it cooks (or cut it up after it cooks). Drain off all fat and add the onion, mushrooms (if desired), and butter to the sausage. Sauté just until the onion is tender.
Sprinkle with the flour and mix well. Add the chicken stock. Stir and cook until thickened. Mix in the cream and remove from heat. At this point you may refrigerate the cooked rice and the sausage mixture (separately) until the next day. If you do this, bring the ingredients to room temperature before baking.
When you are ready to complete the casserole, combine the rice with the sausage mixture and pour into a 2 1/2 quart casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, until the casserole is hot and bubbly.

Personal Notes:
I was looking for a new recipe to use up some sausage one day. I found one, but the trouble was that I didn't have the kind of sausage it called for, the rice it called for, or the mushrooms. I made it anyway, with the ingredients listed above and it is now one of our favorite dishes.

This is another one of my meals that makes a truly prodigious amount, but we like it so much and it is so time-consuming to make (and uses a lot of dishes) that I don't like to make less.
