Oh gosh! This is ssooo good. I have a hard time finding recipes to put my homegrown herbs in, to where you can actually taste them in a dish, but this one really does showcase the herbs beautifully. I left out the onion just on personal preference. One of my favorite recipes.
I just made this as an impromptu dish and it was great! Even with turkey kielbasa. The tomato juice thickened up nicely. The only thing I should've done was throw in the broccoli last - I used frozen broccoli that I defrosted to crisp tender. It held up ok, but I personally wanted the kielbasa and onions flavors to mingle first.
I made this for my family and it was a hit! Even my picky four year old was scaring it down. Thank You.
Easy to prepare, tastes good. My problem is that the onion gets too mushy and the dish is a little soupy. I'm sure there is an easy fix to that though. I love making this in the summer and my husband really loves the sausage in it.
