Made exactly as written. Very bland & family requested me NOT to make it again. My recommendation would be to use a summer sausage/smoked sausage , or andouille sausage.

Made this last night and was it ever good. With a few additions, according to our tastes, I think the dish was improved. Partially cooked cubed potatoes, seasoning salt, toasted fennel seeds, corn, and wine flavored It up just right for up; left out the rice this time.

This is a recipe that you can tailor to suit your family's tastes. I served it over noodles instead of rice. Very good and quick. Just don't cook the zucchini to death. We like it al dente. It does need some salt and pepper and a bit of Italian seasoning because it is bland.

You know it is a good recipe when your 13 year old says "I like zucchini." For someone who doesn't ordinarily like zucchini, he liked this dish. It was quick and easy. Only variation was that we added red pepper flakes to kick up the spice level. This was a tasty dish that was perfect for a hot summer night.

A good recipe, just nothing groundbreaking about it. Very fast to make, so good when you need a quick dinner.

Delicious! I used ground hot Italian sausage and threw in some yellow squash and some chopped red peppers too. Served over brown rice.

I use hot Italian Turkey Sausage, Italian diced tomatoes, extra garlic, and add some Italian seasoning to make the skillet more intensely flavored. Delicious.

Excellent! I used hot turkey sausage and added the extra link. Served over Orzo as another reviewer suggested. I decreased the serving size to 1 cup. Very yummy!

This recipe is fantastic. The only change I've made is to add a can of Rotel tomatoes. I serve it over orzo for something a little different.
