Dirty Rice: A great way to use leftovers!

One afternoon I found myself sifting through my fridge trying to figure out what I could make. I know I'm not the only one who has done this.  Odds and ends of other dinners spread before me-too much to waste, but is it enough to do something with? 

1 sirloin steak thawed out (but this recipe can be adapted by any meat selection)
1 red bell pepper
1/2 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can diced tomatoes

...what can I do with all this? How about Dirty Rice?

Cut up sirloin and saute over low heat in skillet.  On another burner make rice according to directions (2 servings).  Add red pepper to skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil.  Then add spaghetti sauce, tomatoes and season with Cajun seasoning (cayenne, salt, garlic powder) to taste.  Cook over low-med heat until cooked through.  When the rice is finished cooking, add to sauce and mix together.
