MY REVIEW

In searching TOH for supper suggestion on what to do with sausage, came across this recipe. Have everything in-house except okra, I'll improvize. My husband loves sausage, so this dish'll be a hit. Thank you for sharing!

Sincerely,

I have made this twice now using fresh okra (and tomatoes) from our garden, so I did have to cook it a good bit longer. My husband and in-laws and I enjoyed it.
