Hearty Sausage and Potatoes

I like to cook the potatoes and beans in the morning, and then I can just assemble and warm it up when I get home. If you like spicier flavor, add more seasoning.—Marlene Melton, Houston, Texas

    The recipe was certainly easy, and the resulting dish was very tasty. I don't think I would give it an "excellent" rating, but it was very good. I think another time I would use a bit more of the Creole or Cajun seasoning -- perhaps a teaspoon and a half total. And it needed a bit more salt, too. I added about a half cup of frozen red and green pepper strips, for more color and flavor. It was quick, easy and hearty and I would definitely make this again.
