      This was excellent, lots of flavor & taste in this rich dish. With the vegetables and sausage it is a full meal. I did make a few substitutions. I used frozen corn kernels rather than the cob and cut back on oil where I felt I could. I loved the spices added to the sausage. Great idea and they spiced the mild sausage I was using up to where it wasn't lost in the mix. I served with a green salad and garlic bread. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
