"This is a stand-by at our house. I cut the recipe in thirds to make one casserole. I typically add cooked chicken or shrimp. I also substitute canned tomatoes when I don't have fresh on hand. Always a winner with my family!"

"This was pretty good and really easy to put together. I also didn't have the fresh tomato so I used canned and omitted the salt so it wouldn't be too salty. I thought it needed more of a meat flavor, so maybe next time I'll add more sausage, cube it, and then saute it with the veggies to help the flavors mix better. My husband went back for seconds and thirds after the kids were in bed, so you know it had to be good."

"Great flavor and easy to make. I didn't have fresh tomato, so used 1 can of crushed and cut the salt to 3/4 tsp; used 1/4 tsp. of cajun seasoning in place of hot sauce."
