"We love kielbasa so thinking I could get my family to try something new came up with this for lunch. Now it is a quick favorite for anytime. You can adjust the amounts to suit your taste or what you have on hand."

  1. This was really really good! Will be making this alot. Thanks for sharing.
  2. This was Awesome! I forgot to add the sour cream but it was still delicious. I'm sure that would have made it even better. This is the perfect cure to diet boredom. I used Turkey kielbasa and olive oil cooking spray. It's low fat, low carb, low cal, flavorful, filling, and delicious! Thanks!
  3. Wow! Great flavor - so quick and delicious! We really enjoyed this and will certainly make it again. DH suggested adding some caraway seeds next time so we might do that just for fun. Thanks TLu. Made for Best of 2010.
  4. Quick, easy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written with the exception of adding a little more red pepper flakes. I used reduced fat sour cream which really gave the dish a wonderful creamy taste. I will be making this often in the future. Made for Best of 2010 Cookbooks Game.
  5. YUMM! I used turkey kielbasa and cut back a bit on the carrots, other than that I followed the recipe. DH and I are on a low carb diet and this really fit the bill. Wow, this recipe was easy to make and very tasty.


  1. This was very, very good! I used garlic sausage instead of kielbasa and added a little more red pepper flakes. I just ate the leftovers for lunch and it was still good. YUM!
  2. Tasty and easy to make. I loved the little bit of heat from the red pepper flakes. I used butter instead of olive oil and used lowfat turkey keilbasa, but otherwise followed the recipe. I enjoyed this with a cool dallop of sour cream.. Thanx for posting!


<p>Cooking is my passion! I enjoy reading cookbooks; especially old church ones. I don't have a favorite published cookbook; our family has our own which we call the 'cooking bible.' We like to cook together and try new ethnic cuisines. I work as a business consultant. I never can understand people who don't enjoy cooking especially if they like eating. <br />&nbsp;<br /><br /><img title=Photo src=http://www.pickle.com/plink/ph/795B07337A4704307B51032E7C5A0433785C1C512307476E143E5A652E076C307C5C0A357F5A0439140741682C4659712C.jpg border=0 alt=coolmonday-particiation2 /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;<br /><br /><br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;</p>
