This is a great one dish meal. We love kielbasa and sauerkraut over potatoes. We found this recipe and this is how we eat kielbasa and kraut now.

Boy oh boy this was yummy! I lightened it up by using only 1 T olive oil and using turkey kielbasa; otherwise I followed the recipe to a "t". There isn't necessarily anything earthshattering about this--there are lots of sausage and kraut with noodle recipes. What is notable about this one is that it is the first one to capture all the flavors I want in such a dish. Usually I am left saying "well, if only it had this or that"--not so here. That said, next time I will probably take the pasta down to 8 oz-ish so each bite will have more kraut and sausage. Oh, btw, my 1 year old DS really went to town on this, so it is safe to say it is fairly kid friendly. Thanks so much for posting! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

I had to show some love back so I searched for one of your recipe's and what a coinsadance, I just love Keilbasa. Instead of the Ziti pasta, I used rigatoni and added some hot sauce. A very unique dish indeed and tasty. Kudos to you!

I thought the bell pepper added a very strange flavor to what could've been an awesome dish. :-( Don't think we'll be repeating this one, unfortunately.
