I began serving a version of this dish as a side with grilled salmon. I added sausage and rice-or noodles-to make a complete meal-in-one. -Debby Abel of Flat Rock, North Carolina

A good recipe, just nothing groundbreaking about it. Very fast to make, so good when you need a quick dinner.

Delicious! I used ground hot Italian sausage and threw in some yellow squash and some chopped red peppers too. Served over brown rice.

I use hot Italian Turkey Sausage, Italian diced tomatoes, extra garlic, and add some Italian seasoning to make the skillet more intensely flavored. Delicious.

Excellent! I used hot turkey sausage and added the extra link. Served over Orzo as another reviewer suggested. I decreased the serving size to 1 cup. Very yummy!

This recipe is fantastic. The only change I've made is to add a can of Rotel tomatoes. I serve it over orzo for something a little different.
