    Amazing. Who would think that Worcestershire sauce and a little bit of cayenne pepper would make such an amazing flavor. Chicken sausage works well in this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't cut up my zucchini but instead used the spiralizer as to make a little bit of pasta noodle without the pasta. I did add about a handful of red bell peppers and mushrooms. Otherwise follow the recipe exactly. Absolutely outstanding and pretty healthy. I can see why it was a contest winner. when you're presenting it you may want to put out some Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top. This recipe reminds me a little bit of sausage and peppers.

    We really liked this easy skillet meal. It was a great use of veggies from our garden. I did leave out the garlic and cyaenne pepper. I seemed spicy anyway. I served it over brown rice.

    Quick, easy & flavorful. Made this recipe using the sausage and then a 2nd time using chicken, Added a bit more red pepper with the chicken and it was amazing both times. It is a keeper
