Easy Sausage & Rice

My family loves this meal. I make it whenever I can't think of anything else to make. The optional ingredients really add to the flavor, but can be left out if you don't have them on hand.

1 lb. ground sausage
1 small onion, chopped (optional)
3 celery, chopped (optional)
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp rubbed sage (optional)
1 pkg lipton dry soup mix, chicken noodle flavor
4 cups water
4 cups Minute Rice

Brown sausage in a large skillet, add all spices to the meat while browning. Saute onions and celery with meat. Meanwhile, heat water to boiling and add soup mix. Add rice to meat in skillet to soak up flavors. Pour in prepared soup mix. Cover, remove from heat, wait 5 minutes. Serve with salad.
You may also substitute prepared long-grain rice for the Minute Rice, soup mix and water if you prefer. Enjoy.
