Our son, Will, is a brand new dad. He cooked this blend of sausage, beans, tomatoes and rice when we came to visit our newborn granddaughter, Jenna. The beauty of the dish is the simplicity: Toss the ingredients in one pan, simmer, and you've got dinner. Add corn bread and a tossed salad on the side. —Will Owen, Waco, Texas
From Chula Vista, California, Rita Kodet explains, “Looking for something different to prepare with Polish sausage, I created this entree one afternoon. My family liked it so well that I’ve made it time and again since.”
You’ll need only three ingredients to prepare this pleasantly sweet treatment for sausage sent in by Jody Sands Taylor of Richmond, Virginia. Serve it as a main dish …or with toothpicks for a hearty appetizer. TIP: “Fat-free or turkey kielbasa can be used instead.”
It's a snap to make this dish using baking mix. I got the idea from a similar recipe with hamburger and cheddar cheese. That version was too bland for my family, but I made a few changes, and this is a hit! —Bonnie Marlow, Ottoville, Ohio
This hearty casserole has a flavor combination that the whole family will love. “My husband, who is always suspicious of new dishes, loves this one. It's become a regular in our rotation.” -Beth Cholette of Penfield, New York
My father-in-law grows zucchini, so we try as many different recipes as we can. Stuffed with a sausage-cheese filling, these zucchini boats are hearty enough to be a main dish. We usually serve them with rice.
Everyone loves these warm tortillas wrapped around the mixed grill, veggies and cheese. The recipe's an original with me, and through trial, I found you cannot make an error!—Karen Haen, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
