"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."
