Kielbasa with Veggies

The home economists in the Quick Cooking Test Kitchen whipped up this comforting combination that takes advantage of time-saving frozen vegetables and fully cooked sausage. A little soup mix lends a mild onion flavor to this winter warmer-upper, which your family is sure to love.

    Very tasty, since there are only two of us I used 1/2 of everything, very easy to make into a smaller dish. Economical, easy and enjoyable!

    This is delicious! I could only find a 32 oz size of the frozen stew veggies. I ended up using the whole bag with a whole can of broth and entire envelope of soup mix. We ate a ton and have only a tiny bit leftover.

    This was great! I made it exactly as the recipe called for and will plan on making it again. I might add a little extra broth next time, it seemed to need it. I might also add some extra vegetables (or just potatoes) since we like a lot of them. Definitely a keeper recipe.

    Instead of using the stew veggies, I used a 32 0z bag of broccoli, cauliflower and carrot mix. It was delicious.
