Kielbasa with Vegetables and Orzo

I had half of a Kielbasa in the fridge and wanted to try something new with it.  This dish came to mind.  It's easy and quite delicious.  I also love the orzo in it and the little kick from the tomatoes with jalapenos.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-cooking spray
-8 oz Polska Kielbasa
-1 small onion, chopped
-1 bell pepper, chopped
-1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes with zesty jalapenos
-1 1/4 cup uncooked orzo pasta
-1/2 cup water
-1/2 tsp dried thyme
-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Coat a large oven proof saucepan with cooking spray and place on stove over medium-high heat. Slice the sausage halfway, then slice in 1/2 inch slices.  Add to the hot pan and cook until nice and brown.  Add the onion and pepper.  Cook for about 3 minutes.  Add the tomatoes with the juice and give it a good stir.  Add the pasta, water and thyme.  Mix well, cover and place in preheated oven.
Bake, covered, for 50 minutes.  Remove from the oven, add the oil and stir.  Cover and bake for 10 more minutes.
Remove from the oven, stir again and scoop into plates.  Enjoy!
