Found this searching for a way to use up some leftover summer sausage and was pleasantly surprised. Thank you.

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.

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

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!

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.

This is the same as the Hungarian "Lecso", a great summer dish. You can make it meatless, or with eggs added too, it's delicious.

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.

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!
