Reviews for Smoked Sausage Primavera
"Excellent and easy!"
"I didn't like the sauce. Nothing special."
"It could use a little more sauce, but is good for a quick meal."
"This was very good - nice use of smoked sausage. Next time I'll probably leave out the broccoli and increase the peppers."
"Surprisingly delicious and super easy and fast! I doubled the amount of sausage since we love the taste of more meat in each bite. Definitely a keeper."
"Wasn't sure about using the evaporated milk, as I'm not crazy about the taste of it, but I couldn't tell it was in there, and the whole dish was wonderful! It went together quickly and we all loved it....definitely a keeper to make often."
"This is now a regular at our home. It is great warm or cold as a leftover for a packed lunch the next day! Great color too!"
"When I made this recipe I used half of a large onion as my family LOVES onion, I didn't have frozen broccoli cuts so I substituted frozen broccoli stir-fry veg. It was absolutely yummy! Hubby isn't a fan of smoked sausage so next time I think I'll try it with chicken. But I will definitely make this again."
"Made double recipe to serve 8. Not disappointed with result. Got lots of compliments. Usually "doctor" my recipes but this one was great as is. Glad I found it."
"Awesome!! Ideal for a weeknight since it takes no time at all to get this on the table."
