Baked Jambalaya

This is one of the dishes I am bringing to this month's cooking co-op that Megan has mentioned previously. I checked out the book Once a Month Cooking from the library to get some more recipes that freeze well. This came from there.

3 Tbsp. real bacon bits
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 Tbsp. green onions, chopped (tastes fine without)
1/2 pound cooked kielbasa, sliced
1/2 pound cooked diced ham
1/2 tsp. dried thyme (I added more)
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 14.5 oz. can beef broth
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice

Mix together in a large mixing bowl all ingredients except rice. If freezing, pour into freezer bag, label and freeze. To prepare, thaw, add rice, and place in greased 9x13" baking dish. Cover and bake at 375 for 1 hour or until rice is tender. Uncover and stir before serving. Makes 8-10 servings.
