"This has become one of our favorite go-to weekday suppers. I make as directed except that I use low sodium chicken broth and turkey kielbasa, and I double all the veggies (no need to double the butter or chicken broth when doing this) because I even like it reheated to eat for lunch the next day. DELICIOUS!"

"We have enjoyed this recipe several times and I Just had to write a 5 star review. It is so tasty, easy and healthy. I don't always add the green pepper, but I do add cider vinegar and/or red wine vinegar as part of the liquid. It adds another layer of wonderful flavor. We use turkey sausage and garlic salt instead of plain salt."

"I'm not a great lover of kielbasa however I loved this recipe! The cabbage helped soften the salty flavor. This is a keeper."

"Excellent and easy. I used more cabbage (we really like cabbage) and poured some home made Habenero/Jalepeno salsa over , stirred and lapped it up .Certainly a KEEPER. I forgot to say I used Smoked turkey Sausage to cut fat"

"quick, easy and delicious. 20 minutes with the skillet. We ate it with mashed potatoes and carrots and it was perfect. I thought it would be blander (and I think some might like to add more spice of something I guess), but the flavors of the kielbasa and chicken broth saute nicely with the cabbage and salt and pepper. You really don't need much more."
