This recipe is quick and easy but needed a little seasoning to make it 5 star. I added 1 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 tsp. cumin and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper to give it some extra flavor. Used Portuguese sausage and my family loved it. Great for busy nights with little time to cook. Might try diced tomatoes with jalepenos next time. Overall very good.

Not nearly enough beans and they don't get creamed. It works as a way to make plain sausage more interesting, but I wouldn't call it red beans and rice.

This was sooo good!! I followed some of the advice of the reviewers, and changed the recipe some. I'm so glad I made this! My changes: skipped the onion, sauteed a little bit of frozen diced green pepper. It seemed like a lot of sausage for just 1 can of kidney beans, so I used 2 cans of light red kidney beans. I used 1 can of petite diced tomatoes, drained the can into the pan and only used half of the tomatoes (my preference). I added the following seasonings while everything was simmering: garlic powder, creole seasoning, cayenne pepper and oregano. I can't wait to have leftovers for dinner this evening! Yum!

I used long grain brown rice,olive oil (instead of butter) and low-fat chicken sausage..this was fantastic (and very healthy)

This recipe was good, I added some parsley, cayenne pepper, thyme, sage and some cajun seasoning that another recipe suggested. I also used a red pepper instead of a green pepper and it was great. A big hit! Really good served with Corn Bread.

i made this recipe to complement the johnsonville louisiana andouille-style sausage i had (or vice versa) and was pleased with the results. we like our spicy foods spicy so we stirred in 1 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 tsp. cumin & 1/4 tsp. cayenne into the sauce. this dish also went well with brown rice. thanks diane!

Fast, easy, and good. I used a whole pepper instead of 1/2. I wish I had read the other reviews and added a bit more seasoning. Makes great left-overs!

Great recipe, my wife and I enjoyed it very much and will make it again. I used a can of diced tomatoes and green chiles which added some good spice.
