Preheat oven to 450°. Coat a 3-qt. baking dish with nonstick spray.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Add sausage and brown, 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until firm, about 10 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate to cool, then slice into ½-inch-thick pieces.

Melt butter in same skillet. Add onion and celery and sweat until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 2 minutes.

Toss bread with sausage, onion mixture, and rice. Stir in parsley, sage, broth, salt, and pepper flakes. Transfer dressing to prepared dish.

Bake dressing until bread is crispy around edges, about 30 minutes.
