In large skillet cook sausage until no longer pink, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain off excess fat. Add green bell pepper and onion; cook until crisp. 

Add diced tomatoes and vegetable juice; cook and stir until mixture boils. Remove from heat and stir in rice. 

Cover and let stand 6 to 8 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.  

Sprinkle with cheese; cover and let stand until cheese is melted.
