READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Denise in da Kitchen

From TOH, this looks like a quick and easy weekday dinner for my DH. A good use for that occasional left-over kielbasa.

This was good and was well received. I used half and half but I'd use whipping cream next time to get the richness. I would also add a lot more greens, but that's a personal preference. I also found it needed some salt. Thanks for the recipe.
