Sausage & Rice Casserole

This is a recipe that I have used over and over. A dear pastor's wife brought this to me along with the recipe after I had surgery several years ago.

1 pound sausage (cooked)
2 cups rice (cooked)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Combine the first 5 ingredients. Put into a 13 x 9 baking dish. Top with cheese. Bake at 325 degrees 20 - 25 minutes.
