I (and the rest of my family) think it's very tasty But we added fresh Bell peppers, onion, and used fresh mushrooms instead of canned and beef broth instead of water witch made it delicious but it's very easy and I think Kielbasa is the best meat for the "colorful kielbasa" recipe. -my son daden angel who loves cooking and helping out.
We really liked this dish! It definitely does stick to your ribs! I did substitute cream of mushroom soup for the cream of celery soup. Because people said they had issues with the rice, I cut the amount of rice down to 1/2 cup and increased the cooking time to about 20-22 minutes, waiting until most of the liquid was absorbed. The rice came out fine, and not chewy.
I made this to test the rice issue.. some have mentioned in the forums that the rice wasn't getting soft (ie, not being cooked). I think this is due to the soup absorbing too much of the water, not leaving enough for the rice which needs twice the amount of water than rice in order to cook properly. The recipe is excellent, when you cook the rice separately and add it just before serving. Kielbasa and sweet rope sausage are interchangeable in this recipe.
Made this last night. It was very easy and quick. Everyone enjoyed the flavor. I also had
trouble with the rice not getting soft enough. Even so I will make it again and work on the rice.
I've made this several times, sometimes substituting mushroom soup and chopped celery. Also very good.
