Prep couldn't be simpler with this convenient dinner: Just load most of the ingredients in the cooker, and turn the dial to low. Stir in shrimp during the last few minutes so it cooks perfectly without getting overdone. Unlike classic jambalaya, this version keeps the rice separate, and you serve the highly seasoned sausage-shrimp mixture on top. (If you were to cook the rice the entire six hours in the slow cooker, you'd unfortunately end up with mush.) Round out this meal with a small green salad, a slice of toasted French baguette, and a crisp white wine or fizzy lager.
