Great dish to use those fresh summer veggies from the garden. Full of flavor. I usually line the crockpot with those special liners made by Reynolds for quick and easy cleanup.

Surprisingly tasty, great way to use up excess summer veggies. I used chicken sausage.

This is a hearty and delicious dish! I used hot Italian turkey sausage and it was just great with all those veggies. I served this on it's own but I think it would be great over rice or pasta too. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012

Great timing for this recipe with bushels or squash coming out of the garden! I changed the sausage to turkey sausage. Thanks!
