My husband and I really liked it, but the kids not so much. It's one I may make again in the future and freeze for lunches rather than offer as supper.
This was really delicious. I did make a few changes. I didn't use the kidney beans at all as no one in our house likes them, sticking only with one can of black beans, one can of northern beans. Secondly, I used both red wine and beef stock in 3/4 c. measurements each. I also added an additional 1/2 pound of the sausage because my family's crazy for it. I added an extra carrot too. Honesty, it was delicious and warming and the sauce was rich and flavorful. My hubby loved it!
Well if it was up to me I would have only gave it 2 stars because I did not like it at all but my husband loved it. I will not be making it again though.
I have made this recipe several times over the years. Its great for a potluck or dinner on a chilly fall or winter night served with a crusty bread. I always put in my crock pot and let cook on low, It turns out great every time.
Excellent flavor! I vary the vegetables substituting rutabega or butternut squash for carrots. Sometimes I use all three. Leftovers are the best!
