I made this for dinner last night. It was really easy but not my favorite dish I've ever made. My husband really liked it but picked out all the spinach because it was a little over done for him. Next time I'll try broccoli like some other people suggested. I think that would be much better, personally.

The tangy, autumny taste was unusual, but good. Will definitely make again. It was so easy!

I liked it, but the boys of my house are traditional meat 'n' potato guys; the vinegary German potato salad taste was not well-liked. I used turkey kielbasa, but if I were to try it again, I would use a spicy sausage. It was a good change-of-pace recipe, but it didn't work with my picky eaters.

Being on a low carb diet potatoes are out for me so I use, beef smoked sausage kielbasa cut into coins ,1 chopped onion, 1 sliced yellow summer squash, 1 sliced zucchini, a chopped carrot, 2 ribs of celery chopped, 1 can cannellini beans drained and rinsed, 1/4 c. frozen peas, 1/4 c. frozen corn and a whole bag of baby spinach. The herbs I use are marjoram, lemon thyme, oregano, chives, and garlic.

Excellent, filling meal that is good for you too, with plenty of left overs that are even better the next day.

I haven't tried it with the bacon, brown sugar, mustard and vinegar. Will have to try that version next time, but I will definitely keep my summer veggies. :)
