This recipe was good and easy to make.....turned out a little bland though. We added a can of Rotel and some Creole seasoning which helped a lot. With a few extra spices, this is a great dish!

It was very good and soooo easy to make. I generally prefer to just throw all my ingredients into a crockpot and then forget about it but this one was worth the extra few minutes to brown the sausage at the end. This is absolutely a great recipe for vegetarians that occasionally crave country cooking.
