Great, easy recipe. Turn it into breakfast by serving smaller portions topped with sunny side up eggs.

This is an easy dish to make. Good for a quick weeknight meal. I thought it was lacking some taste, but my family liked it a lot. I will be making it again and will try adding some other seasonings.

So good and very easy. The only thing I added was some Cajun seasoning to the meat/veggie mixture in the beginning.

This turned out pretty good. A lot of flavor that got even better the next day. I doubled the recipe so we would have left-overs for lunch the next day. Easy to make and I will fix this again.

Husband thought this was tasty. Frankly, a lot of men would go for a dish like this. I left out the ham and doubled the turkey kielbasa. Next time I might add the ham in, though. I used "Butterball" brand turkey kielbasa and we both thought this brand had a ton of decent flavor--a wee bit better turkey flavor than "Hillshire". I do all the kitchen cooking in my house and having hit the age of 60 and still working full-time, I have been hunting for less prep-intensive recipes. This was so easy to prepare! Be sure to cut the carrots into a small dice so they are done when the rest of the veggies are cooked. I did add a bit of Cajun seasoning since hubby likes that kind of flavor. I did not use no-sodium products--never do.

I made this with Hebrew National Beef frankfurters and canned tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, omitting spices. It would have been better had I followed the recipe more closely, but it was still good. It was too salty for me. It is good for a quick weeknight meal, and hubby thought it was great. Worth making again.

This recipe is so quick and easy and tasty. It has become a keeper in our house. I often fix it on Saturdays when I am not in a "cooking" mood.

We loved this dish--I doubled the recipe and everything came out beautifully. Would definitely make it again.

We make our sausage so this is a great recipe. I also added more meat, and any kind of canned bean works great in this recipe. I'd make it again.

Well now I know why the "bring to a boil" direction was so confusing: in the magazine it said to drain the tomatoes, here it says not to. Anyway, it came out tasty. I added more meat (had about half a pound of ham, almost a pound of sausage) and I think there were so many beans that it would've been overly-bean-dominated otherwise. I also added probably half a can of black beans I had lying around. Tasty, filling, and easy to make.
