"I made this last night and I thought it was great! Only had one package kielbasa (14 ounces) so I used a little more russet potatoes (1.5 lb). the potatoes took quite a while to soften in the microwave and did begin to lose their shape towards the end of assembly. I think gold potatoes would work better here, since they don't fall apart. I did NOT like the slimy texture of the wilted spinach; I think next time, I'll try cabbage or kale instead. Used a little less sugar than the sauce called for and made 1.5X the original sauce amount, despite halving the other ingredients. I also added sweet basil and red pepper flakes to round the sauce out. I thought this meal was fantastic and can't wait to make it again! I agree with other reviewers that many veggies would make a nice addition (corn, green beans, bell peppers, carrots, etc). Thanks for the great recipe!"
