The first recipe my kids requested when they left home was broccoli with sausage and rice. If fresh zucchini or summer squash is available, add it to the mix. —JoAnn Parmentier, Branch, Michigan

"I have made this recipe twice and it definitely needed tweaked. I sauteed onion and fresh garlic with the sausages. I still used Penzey's Roasted Garlic and vegetable broth in place of the water. With these changes, my husband and I enjoyed the dish. It was quick, made plenty for leftovers and there was only one pan to clean up. I would definitely recommend with a few changes for more flavor."

"My family enjoy this dish. It does need a little more flavor so next time I will use more garlic powder and cheese."

"The good thing about this dish is that it is quick and easy, but it does not have much flavor. If I were to make it again I would probable substitute fresh garlic for the garlic powder, chicken or vegetable broth for the water and maybe red pepper flakes for some punch."
