Totally delicious. I did not have green pepper so used a couple carrots. It is so flavorful and yum yum yummy and great for when you don't have a lot of time to make dinner or any other time also!

I tripled this recipe for 3 of us and so we can have leftovers. This was so good and so easy! I added some portobello mushrooms, I made some skillet cornbread to go with it. It was delicious. Will make this again for sure!!

This is a great, simple recipe! I didn't use rice, since my husband doesn't care for rice. I boiled some potatoes, and we also had leftover noodles. It's great with both! I also did, what others suggested, and added some carrots, and a little cayenne pepper. I double the recipe for the 3 of us, but next time I'm going to have to doubt THAT, for the sauce part of the recipe. It will defintly become a regular in my home!

I'm always looking for easy recipes with smaller portions. This one is definitely going in my keeper file. Next time I'm adding a little red pepper flake or using spicy V8.

I made it just like the recipe said but doubled the sausage and used 1 onion and 1 green pepper, regular V8 (2 cups), soup spoon of garlic, 1 tsp each of oregano and basil. Me and my 3 kids loved it!!

Down home cooking. We loved it with no changes made and I loved it because it was quick to make.

Easy and quick! It tasted great too! I hate V-8 juice and only use it in my tomato soup, but this recipe gave me a use for an extra can I had on hand.Made a few changes: doubled the recipe to feed the whole family, added a 16 oz can of rinsed red beans, added chopped carrots and celery. Served over rice.

This tasted very good. The changes Imade were to use Smoked Turkey Sausage. I served it overUncle Ben's Ready Whole Grain Medley Vegetable Harvest. It turned out very good and fast.

This was really quick and easy. I only had Spicy V-8 on hand and it turned out great. This had just the right amount of zip to it! Not something I would serve for a dinner party, but just right for a quick, easy, and tasty dinner.
