"This was very good - nice use of smoked sausage. Next time I'll probably leave out the broccoli and increase the peppers."

"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."
