I threw this together to use up produce before going out of town. Who knew it was going to be such a hit! It's great when you don’t have much time to cook or wash dishes. —Elizabeth Kelley, Chicago, Illinois

"This is very tasty. I used bulk country sausage and frozen spinach because that is what I had, but other than that made as specified and we really liked it."

"This wasn't as quick as indicated. Additionally, although we like all the ingredients in the dish, it really lacked flavor. I took what was left over from this dish and added it to some vegetable soup I made and had frozen."

"I used Welshire Farms uncured Kielbasa, chicken broth but not as much as recommend, purple cabbage as another person did, and added strips of half a red bell pepper that I had. I forgot the spinach, oops. It was a delicious, and colorful dish. Will certainly make again. So nice that the changing of some ingredients didn't affect the success of the dish."

"This was very tasty. I followed the recipe but used sweet italian sausage instead of the one made from chicken and I also used chicken broth. Before serving I sprinkled Smokehouse Maple by McCormick Grill Mates which made a huge difference in the flavor. Delicious!"

"We liked this as it was, but what is so nice about this is the ease of being able to swap ingredients around, LOVE that."

"This has a wonderful combination of flavors! I used chicken broth because I had it on hand, but used spaetzle instead of potatoes. We served it to others and they raved about it. Thank you for the recipe!"

"We liked it. I followed the recipe as written except I used a half a head of cabbage instead if the spinach. I added the cabbage at the same time as the potatoes and they where both done nicely at 15 minutes. This is not gourmet food, but it is hardy and tasty."

"We all have our favorite veggies, these are good ones in this recipe. I did a few things differently to suit my tastes. Otherwise a good one to follow."

"nice combination and very easy to prepare. I will probably add extra spinach. It got lost."

"Did it pretty much as is but for the sausages. I use italian and other kinds. Add a bit more red pepper flakes and use water instead of the broth. And I threw in chunks of tofu for everyone to enjoy. By slicing the potatoes thinner the cooking time is pretty much 15-20 minutes. Very tasty recipe. Everyone had second and third helpings!"
