Loved it! I Added a red bell pepper, since I had one in the fridge that I needed to use before it turned. Didn't add the okra (didn't have any, and we don't really like it anyhow), a can of petite diced tomatoes (made for a great sauce) and used Johnsonville sweet Italian sausage links since it was what I had on hand. This was delicious, quick and easy, and will certainly be on our regular rotation. :)

This is OK for a skillet meal. If I ever make it again, I will cook the sausage through in the skillet before adding the other ingredients. I had to cook the jambalaya for over an hour, and the rice got overcooked.

Very good! I used the recipe for a great springboard, & tweaked it just a bit (as we cooks will do!). I browned the hot Italian sausage first, then crumbled. I tripled all the veggies, added mushrooms, used only half the sausage stated (just wanted the taste), & added Tony Cachere's to the seasonings. Put it all in the crockpot, & let it cook on low for 6-7 hours. Delicious!!! Oh, I also doubled the brown rice portion & added that to the crockpot with everything else. At the very end, I stirred in about 1-2 teaspoons of file' powder. OMG! What a fantastic meal!!! I realize it sounds as if I made a lot of changes, but really it was just playing with proportions rather than the actual ingredients. Great budget recipe - I end up with about twelve 1-1/2 cups servings for around $7! It also freezes beautifully & reheats extremely well. So, 5-stars for all those things!

I made this because sausage was the only meat I had on hand (it did happen to be Bob Evans). I followed the recipe pretty much but didn't have celery on hand so I used a small can (4 oz) of mile green chiles (just because I did have them on hand). Because I used the mild chiles I didn't add hot sauce. I did have frozen okra and did use it in the recipe but only put in about 1/2 of the amount shown. I just felt that much okra would overpower the rice.

Easy, easy, easy! My 18 year old niece and I made this together trying to create a meal out of the slim pickins' in the cuboard. I didn't add the okra (didn't have it) but did add a can of beans. Everyone loved it and it sure didn't taste like an end of the month, scrape it together dinner! Thanks, this is a keeper in our house!

Yummy recipe! I am not normally a huge fan of jambalaya, but the Italian sausage made this a big hit! I didn't have any okra (and I don't think my kids would eat it anyway) so instead I subbed half a red pepper and half a yellow one. Also used diced tomatoes with green chilis, which were awesome for this! The seasonings were perfect (I didn't feel the need to add anything, which is rare) and I will definitely make this again!

This was delicious! I didn't use the Bob Evans brand sausage either because the store I stopped at didn't have it. I did use hot italian sausage for a "kick," and I'm glad I did, because I think it really pulled the whole dish together. This is a keeper for sure.

This was very tasty and very easy to make. I have to confess that I did not use Bob Evans sausage, just some other random brand. I left out the okra and didn't miss it at all. I suggest that the sausage casings be removed before cooking. I also had to add a little bit of olive oil to the sausage, onion and celery so that the veggies would not burn.
