This is delicious! Since I made this as a main dish, I used a whole pound of kielbasa. It was hearty and flavorful and it made a lot! I didn't have any Lipton's so I used 3 tsp chicken bouillon powder and a half cup of superfine egg noodles. I used long grain rice. The result was a perfectly seasoned rice and sausage dish that my whole family enjoyed. It makes 6 servings, with the pound of sausage. Next time I'll toss in a handful of sweet peas for color and to round it out with a little veggies. Thank you!
The taste was alright, but kind of bland. I had to add more water for the rice to finish cooking and the bottom of the pan still burnt. I might make it again, but it would need more seasoning and more kielbasa added.
This was wonderful, I lost track of how many helpings my son took! I did not have the soup on hand, so I used 1 Tablespoon of Chicken Base...and about a 1 cup of noodles....Next time, I will use fine noodles...It was just great and easy thank you. We love kabasa!
