I didn't care for this one at all. It was really bland so I then doubled the salt pepper and paprika. Still pretty rough. Added a ton of hot sauce just to make it edible. Read More

This was so simple yet so amazing! I used caribou summer sausage and served cabbage and sour cream/chive pierogies on the side. Read More

Delicious! This is simple to prepare economical and most importantly good. I used a regular smoked sausage instead of pepperoni (my boyfriend doesn't really care for pepperoni for some reason). The flavor is delicate yet powerful (paprika is one of my favorite spices). Great winter comfort food and I will make it again. It is on the same page as a keilbasa and cabbage recipe I made from this site a few weeks back. I would enjoy adding cabbage to this dish. I guess as a Czech you can't go wrong with sausage and vegetables! Read More

Very good! I had some summer sausage that was going to expire in a couple of days and thought this would be a good way to use it up. I did add some non-traditional ingredients that turned out to be great additions. I added some garlic with the onion. I also added some zucchini and fennel with the tomatoes. I served it over rice with a side of cheese garlic biscuits and a glass of California Rose. Great dinner! My husband who is a big lover of any sort of processed meat raved about this dish. Read More

Nice dinner full of vegetables! Next time I will add some garlic maybe more salt and some cayenne pepper to increase the depth of flavor. Read More

Absolutely delicious! I needed a recipe for summer sausage as that was one of few things left in the freezer. It was perfect. Even my boyfriend's daughter who doesn't like cooked peppers cleaned her plate without one complaint! Read More

This was great! Even my picky teenage daughters ate it up. I was forced to use a small can of petite diced tomatoes as I didn't have any fresh tomatoes on hand and it still turned out great! Fast and filling this is a perfect busy weeknight dinner. Read More
