Very nice! We used it as a main dish - it was filling and flavorful. We enjoyed the nice little kick, and I served with hot sauce on the table for those who wanted more kick. Thanks for sharing. ZWT9

This is such an easy dish to make and it is full of flavor. It can be a main dish or a nice hearty side dish. I used smoked sausage as we have great sausages made here in the Texas Hill Country, but I can see where the cajun sausage would be equally delicious. Thanks so much for the post.
