    LifeIsGood's Note:

    From Food & Wine magazine. This makes a pretty and tasty meal for four. If you like your jambalaya really spicy, you could add hot sauce when serving. Enjoy!

      This was a good, interesting change from a tomato-based jambalaya. It was very savory and filling. ZWT9

      We made this tasty jambalaya last night for dinner and really enjoyed it. Since I don't eat meat, I used Vegan Andouille-Style Sausage for the andouille. This andouille recipe is pretty spicy, so along with the other jambalaya ingredients, I used very little hot sauce upon serving. Both DH and I agreed that this is a keeper that we would have again. Thanks!

      Scrumptious! My grocer doesn't carry Andouille sausage so I substituted 1/2 hot links and 1/2 hot Italian sausage. Thanks, LifeIsGood! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap.
