Frugal Food- Keilbasa Skillet dinner for 4-6

I make this about once a month and my husband and child love it. It makes enough for a meal for all of us and leftovers for me and the toddler for lunch. It also freezes okay if you add additional tomato sauce or water when you thaw it and reheat.

1 package keilbasa, cut into small sausage rings
1 can tomato sauce (normal size can not the little ones)
1 cup water
1 cup rice - not brown or instant, but even a jasmine rice tastes good in this
1 onion chopped
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1can of corn drained or about 3/4 cup frozen corn
Garlic and Italian season to taste

Brown keilbasa and cook onion till clear. Add all other ingredients, stir, cover and cook for about thirty minutes till rice is done.

Prices at Aldi's Nov 2010
Keilbasa- $2
Tomato Sauce 55 cents
Black Beans- 55 cents
Corn- 50 cents
Rice-(less than 15 cents for portion used)
1 onion- 30 cents
