Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You may also want to brown the sausage before adding it to all the other ingredients. It is still excellent without browning first, though.

This recipe lived up to the name. I put shrimp into the recipe b/c it's not jambalaya (to me) without shrimp. I skipped the hot sauce, opting for a dash of cayenne.

This was a really tasty, quick dish. I did use rice since that it what I had. I will make this again.

This is a fast twist on jambalaya which keeps the kids happy and gets the family a yummy home-cooked meal quickly. I followed the recipe exactly and will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!

This was a huge hit! I have a large family so I tripled the recipe. I used beef cheddar kielbasa and doubled the herds & spices. For added color I used red, orange, and yellow bell peppers. I will definitely be making this again.

This was wonderful and one of the easiest recipes I've tried. Like Lea, I skipped the orzo as I don't keep it on hand and served the rest over brown rice instead. Yummy! I'll definitely make this many more times, and will probably double it for an upcoming family dinner. Thanks so much for sharing this!

I chose not to use the pasta. Instead, I put the jambalaya over rice and it's just as tasty! :)

Very good & easy! Added chicken sausage & fresh shrimp w/tails on for last 5 min so they would be tender. Served w/additional salt & hot sauce on side and petite French baguettes! Great for a cold night!
