Quick Sausage & Rice Skillet

This is a lost and found recipe. I originally found it in 1988, on the back of a package of smoked sausage. I made it quite often for my husband and me, with leftovers for the next days lunch. Then we moved, again, and the recipe got lost. I looked everywhere. I had tried to make it a few times, but couldn't remember everything that went in it, and it was wrong. Just wrong. In 1999, my husband's mother gave me a promotional copy of Quick Cooking magazine that she had received in the mail. I was so excited to find what appeared to be the exact recipe that I had lost, submitted by one of their contributors! After preparing it for my family, I knew I was right -- I had found our long-lost favorite! The original recipe merely specified cheddar cheese, but I find we like it better, and can use less, if I use extra sharp cheddar.
