I created this meal when trying to use up a large head of broccoli. My family requests it at least once a week, which is handy because we always have the ingredients. —Lisa Montgomery, Elmira, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2016

"Not everyone wants highly spiced foods. This is a great basic recipe that leaves room for individuality, which can make me feel more like a cook than just a recipe follower. Sky is the limit! TOH Rocks our kitchen!"

MY REVIEW

"Is CookingMommaof3 blind? The recipe clearly says to saute the onions. I think some people just like to rant about a recipe, while not having a clue. Read carefully before you write. I thought it was good."

"I did make substitutions, but i think this recipe -as a base - is great! I subbed spicy beef sausage, red bell pepper, and tomato juice for the kielbasa, onion and tomatoes. Next time i will use spicy brats (i no longer have the meat i used before)

I think Cookingmommaof3's review is a bit harsh. Give it a shot, but dont be afraid to add your own flare to it. Enjoy."

"My husband made this...he tends to add his own zing to things but it was great to me. Would definitely make it again. I don't know what people are talking about."
