      Very, very tasty! I used fresh butter beans, because I had them. Also I halved the recipe, but left the sausage content the sausage! Very easy to make, and reminded me of jambalaya. Didn't turn out like a I said, more like a jambalaya. Very thick.

      We loved this! It was quick to do and had such a lovely subtle flavor. I really don't like butterbeans, but they were great in this dish! I sort of mentally halved the recipe so I may have went wrong somewhere and ended up with a thicker stew than the recipe really would make, but we loved it thick. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT.
