Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Stir together rice, half the broth concentrate, 1 1/4 cups hot water and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is almost tender, 10 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. While the pan heats, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then mirepoix and sausage. Cook, breaking up sausage into smaller pieces, until cooked through, 4-5 min.** Season with salt and pepper. Add peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers soften slightly, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Add tomato sauce base, garlic powder, remaining broth concentrate and half the Italian Seasoning (use all for 4 ppl) to the pan with sausage and peppers. Cook, stirring often, until mixture is coated, 30 sec. Add rice and 1/4 cup hot water (dbl for 4 ppl), then stir to combine. Sprinkle half the Parmesan over the pan. Cover, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 4-6 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered, 2-3 min.
Meanwhile, halve tomatoes. Add vinegar, 1/4 tsp sugar and 1 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then whisk to combine.
When rice is done, add tomatoes and arugula and spinach mix to the bowl with vinaigrette. Toss to combine.
Stir rice to combine with melted Parmesan. Divide sausage and pepper rice between plates. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over top. Serve salad alongside.
