    This was very good. The only thing I changed was that I grilled some green bell peppers along with the onions. It turned out great. My wife really loved it.

    Made this for dinner last night and it was wonderful. Very easy to prepare and tastes great! I used turkey sausage and omitted the butter. Thanks for posting Laurie!

    I made this on 8/6/07,for myself and SO's dinner and we both really enjoyed it very much.I used the directions on the box of potatoes for the amounts of milk and water,but I think that next time I'll use the amounts listed in the recipe.As for the meat I only used 1/2 a pound of smoked sausage,and that seemed like plenty of meat for just the two of us.For the vegetables I had a few baby carrots that needed to be used,so I cut them into small pieces and added them in step 2.For the rest of the veggies I used some leftover corn,and a few frozen peas that I had.Both my SO and I really enjoyed the "slight kick" that the cayenne pepper gave this dish.This recipe thickened up really well and had a very good creamy texture.This will be made again.Thank you for posting,and "Keep Smiling:)"

    I liked this recipe for it's simplicity. It went together so quick and easy! I used polish sausage and green beans for the veggies. Very tasty...didn't get as thick as I had expected, but still good! Thanks!

    This was a VERY good homey meal. Aside from being incredibly simple to make, it was really fast to put together. I substituted the Kielbasa for regular beef sausage as that was what I had on hand, but that combined with the cayenne pepper added nice spice without being too hot. Next time I think I will try it with Hot Italian sausage and leave out the cayenne, just for a change. This recipe will be one I will make again and again, thanks for sharing!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>Before I get to the details let me tell you how I rate recipes.....and tell you how I feel about others ratings! <br /> <br />5 STARS....This recipe was excellant, we liked it very much, the directions were very clear and if I made any minor substitutions I noted it. It would most likely be made again, many times! <br /> <br />4 STARS....This recipe was good, we liked it but I made changes either in taste or it was not clear in something, but I would consider making it again. <br /> <br />3 STARS....This recipe was not something that got approval from the majority. Either it just didnt work in preparation, directions, or taste. I will tell you why and would not make it again unless I altered it much! <br /> <br />2, 1 STARS.....I DO NOT give these as I feel they are NOT worthy....especially if the recipe previously had good reviews and by my giving a low one would jeopardize the ratings. I would appreciate this reciprocated with reviews to my recipes. <br /> <br />0 STARS....COMMENTS I will leave no stars and comments on something that did not work out for me and I will be honest and tell you why. <br /> <br />I DETEST IT WHEN PEOPLE CHANGE YOUR RECIPE OR DONT EVEN MAKE IT THEN LEAVE YOU LOW REVIEWS. PEOPLE WHO DO THAT ARE JUST BEING VINDICTIVE OR JUST PLAIN STUPIDLY CRUEL. Examples of some I've gotten would be: 1 star...This doesnt sound like something we would like 2 stars...too sweet for me, (this was on a all 5 star recipe). <br /> <br /> <br />Now for the details: <br />I was born, raised and still live in the same midwestern town where comfort food is what we thrive on, however my dream is to retire to the northwoods of Wisconsin.. (the sooner the better IMHO)! <br /> <br />I relish a recipe that is simple, quick and tastes great as I am a divorced mom to 4 very busy, active young adults (27, 25, 20 year old daughters and a 21 year old son.) Cooking time is at a premium as everyone is so busy, I never usually know who will be at my house for supper! I also try to find things that will reheat well. <br /> <br />I have worked for 30 years in the accounting field and presently semi retired. It is very nice for a change to not have to deal with the everyday stress of deadlines and office politics! It has been great cooking for pleasure, at my leisure, instead of to feed the troops! <br /> <br />Cooking relaxes me so I do it often and I love to cook for people who appreciate it. It is nothing for me to start a recipe at 10pm right before bedtime, and yes I have cooked all nite. Kind of a marathon!! <br /> <br />Cookbooks are my passion and I can't resist the ones that churches, schools etc. put together and well as the ones in the grocery stores. My collection numbers well over 2000 and where as some people go to bed with a good novel, my nightstand is full of cookbooks! <br /> <br />I love to bake and its nothing for me to make 15-20 different kinds of cookies and candies for the holidays. I guess that it has rubbed off on my oldest daughter who is a culinary school graduate and knee deep in pastry classes, hoping to become a pastry chef! <br /> <br />In March of 2002 I had gastric bypass, weight loss surgery and I have lost 125 pounds FOREVER, so now when I do cook it IS for everyone else to enjoy. <br /> <br />I love Zaar and all the friends I have made here, this sight is so addictive but yet so much fun! And the recipes aren't bad either..LOL! I know that in the years since Ive been a permanent fixture of this site I have acquired many great recipes and tons of cooks that I am proud to call my friends! I have also tried many foods that years ago I would never have even imagined.</p>
