The hubs and I absolutely loved this dish! It is definitely a hearty, stick-to-your-bones kinda meal. During these cold winter evenings, it’s so nice to have a filling, warm dish like this one. And it was PACKED with flavor!


Of course another one of my favorite things about this dish is that it’s a “one pot” recipe. It’s so simple, only takes about 35 minutes to make, and requires very little cleanup! That’s exactly what I need after a long day of work! And it really was crazy delicious. The next day, if I’m excited about eating leftovers, I know it was a great meal…and I could hardly wait to eat these leftovers! One thing to be aware of is you need a BIG skillet for this recipe. Mine (pictured above) is 10 inches wide and 4 inches deep, and it was really not even big enough to stir all the ingredients together. So unless you have a huge skillet, you might want to try a deeper pot.

  1. This looks great Lindsay!! Because I’m trying to eat more healthy – I might skip the sausage and try to boost up the flavor with some spices to make up for the lack of all the yummy flavor from the sausage. ‘Pinning It’ – as always !!

      Thanks Cecile! You could always try a healthier sausage substitute like turkey or chicken sausage. I use turkey sausage all the time (and is what’s pictured in this dish). I can hardly tell the difference!
