"I created this meal-in-one dish when trying to use up a large head of broccoli," recalls Lisa Montgomery of Elmira, Ontario. "It's requested at least once a week in our home, which is handy for me since it's easy to prepare and we always have the ingredients."

"Oh gosh! This is ssooo good. I have a hard time finding recipes to put my homegrown herbs in, to where you can actually taste them in a dish, but this one really does showcase the herbs beautifully. I left out the onion just on personal preference. One of my favorite recipes."

"I just made this as an impromptu dish and it was great! Even with turkey kielbasa. The tomato juice thickened up nicely. The only thing I should've done was throw in the broccoli last - I used frozen broccoli that I defrosted to crisp tender. It held up ok, but I personally wanted the kielbasa and onions flavors to mingle first."

"easy to prepare, tastes good. My problem is that the onion gets too mushy and the dish is a little soupy. I'm sure there is an easy fix to that though. I love making this in the summer and my husband really loves the sausage in it."
