    I didn't like the sauce. Nothing special.

    It could use a little more sauce, but is good for a quick meal.

    This was very good - nice use of smoked sausage. Next time I'll probably leave out the broccoli and increase the peppers.

    Surprisingly delicious and super easy and fast! I doubled the amount of sausage since we love the taste of more meat in each bite. Definitely a keeper.

    Wasn't sure about using the evaporated milk, as I'm not crazy about the taste of it, but I couldn't tell it was in there, and the whole dish was wonderful! It went together quickly and we all loved it....definitely a keeper to make often.

    This is now a regular at our home. It is great warm or cold as a leftover for a packed lunch the next day! Great color too!

    When I made this recipe I used half of a large onion as my family LOVES onion, I didn't have frozen broccoli cuts so I substituted frozen broccoli stir-fry veg. It was absolutely yummy! Hubby isn't a fan of smoked sausage so next time I think I'll try it with chicken. But I will definitely make this again.
