Simply delicious. Easy to make too. I let mine simmer for about 2 hours to let the collard greens soften vs 30 minutes. My family asked for seconds. Oh the broth is delectable.

This wasn't quite what I was looking for but it sure was good. I used regular sausage and I think that made it a little greasy but otherwise it was great and I'm not even that big a fan of greens!

Delicious and quick even with all the substitutions I had to make. I also have a 3 year old and a 1 1/2 year old - both finicky eaters. Both loved it as well as my husband. I did not have the green pepper or collard green (haha) so I substituted fresh spinach. It came out a little too wilted (duh). Anyway, the kids ate it and my husband wants more =) Thanks!
