Broccoli Casserole

I haven't had this for a while, but I made it for a friend the other day and remembered how delicious it is.  It's a recipe my Mom made for us growing up; to me it's a wonderfully homey, feel-good meal.  Here is what you'll need:

1 2lb. bag broccoli cuts
1lb. regular ground sausage
1 1/2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 cups white rice

1. Cook rice on stove or in rice cooker according to package directions.
2.  Brown sausage.
3.  Cook broccoli according to package directions, and then drain all but about an 1/8 cup water.
4.  Combine broccoli, sausage, and soup together in the pot you cooked the broccoli in, and heat through on stove.
5.  Serve on or beside fluffed rice.

You can serve this with baked potatoes instead of rice as well.  
I've also put it with pasta and topped the mixture w/ cheese and baked it for 15 minutes.  It's a very versatile concoction, try something at let me know how it goes!
