Loved this! I used regular Jimmy Dean sausage as my husband is the only fan of "hot", but I ramped up the spices with about 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning and used white rice cooked in chicken broth to lessen the sodium content. Delicious.
Boyfriend really enjoyed this. I wasn't too crazy about it though. Just kind of eh. I probably won't make this again without some changes to the recipe.
This was very easy to put together, and I really like that it can be split up to freeze half for a future dinner. It was a bit salty... reduced sodium soups in place of regular would help that. I think next time I will amp up the seasonings too, just to give it a little more oomph.
I add extra spices. I use 1 1/2 pounds regular pork sausage and 1/2 pound hot sausage for a little extra kick. Very yummy, but not too spicy!
I didn't think it was that amazing, but my very picky family loved it and requested I make it again. I think I would try spicier sausage meat time for a bit more flavor.
I used rice a roni chicken flavor, because that's what I had on hand. Not enough left for leftovers!! Delicious!! Will definitely make again!

i used Deer Sausage and added cabbage to mine. The family loved it. Next time I will add broccoli per family request. For my family this could have actually made 3 meals.
Actually havnt made it yet, but sounds good. Question: How long do you suppose would the frozen 2nd casserole stay good for if I put in a special food storage bag and vacuum sealed it-air tight?Anyone with any real knowledge or authority on this...please advise. Thanks!
