I love rutabagas! This vegetable is full of vitamins and minerals. It has the added plus of storing well. This dish is delicious served with a dark rye bread, potatoes and coarse grain mustard. This recipe was found on Sons of Norway website.

This was Really Good! I was hesitant that there was no seasoning added but with the other good reviews, decided to try it and am very glad I did. My only changes were to add a couple of potatoes and to brown the slices of kielbasa before adding them. The ingredient flavors meld together into a wonderful meal.
