Super dish! My potatoes did not cook as quickly as planned. Might be my slow cooker. Start early, because this gets better with age. Seasonings are perfect!

I thought this was bland. Too many potatoes. The sausage was OK. Nothing unusual

Delicious! Everyone loved it! The only way we've ever eaten linguica is to wrap it in foil with potatoes and bake or grill...which is good, but not something you'd serve to guests or bring to a potluck. You need to have one of the larger crockpots though. oh, and I omitted the bacon and did not miss it at all.

Really good! We all loved it! As I filled my crock pot, there was no way all those zucchini and potatoes would fit. So I used 2 zucchini and 4 small potatoes. Because I live in an area with a large Basque population, linguica is easy to find, but until now, I'd only had it as a pizza topping. Now I have something new to make. Thanks for sharing!

My family is Portugese and we have traditionally had linguica as a breakfast meat. I made the stew for my father and his sister 2 weeks ago and then made it for my children last week. I would make it every week if I had an easy access to linguica! I didnt use a slow cooker, but cooked it slowly on the stovetop. It was YUMMY. This is an excellent recipe that I will use time and time again! Thank you so much!!

This dish is OK but nothing to write home about. To add more flavor, I think it needs more garlic, and add generous tabasco.

This recipe was a wonderful comfort food. I used Hot linguica which gave it a nice kick. I also only used 1 pound of white potatoes. The second time I made it, I added a can of hominy. The flavor was incredible. It was great with sourdough bread. I wanted a little more sauce so I used 1 cup wine and three cans tomato sauce. This recipe does taste better over time. The second and third days later were even better. Thanks for a great recipe. Another time, I did not have zucchini so I added a can of corn and a can of green beans. Still added a cup of wine. Delish!

I was looking for a recipe to use for my son's venison kielbasa. This one worked great! My entire family loved it! I will definitely make it again.
