I think next time I make this I may add some crawfish and shrimp. We prefer our gumbo with a little more meat. I did use andouille sausage which always adds a little more spice.

This was very simple to make.. I did use less Italian seasonings for personal preference, but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for the recipe.
