Smoked Sausage and Zucchini Saute

Recipe by  

"Quick and easy main dish. A good way to use up extra zucchini from the summer garden. My mother used to make this to keep the kitchen from getting too hot from the oven. Serve over cooked rice."

This was wonderful and I am eating the leftovers as we speak! The only change I made as to subsitute olive oil for the margarine and real chopped onion instead of the instant minced. It was the perfect summertime dinner. I served it on a bed of brown rice cooked w/ chicken broth and green onion. Fabulous!

We didn't like this at all. It was salty, bland and dry. Sorry.

I made this and it tasted lovely! My only concern would be that even for 3 people, 1lb of smoked sausage was not enough. I would go for between 1.5 and 2lb's of sausage for a really filling main meal. As the smoked sausage already has a high salt content, I would also refrain from adding any extra salt in future too.

This was delicious! My husband made it and he made a few changes: he didn't use any butter, instead he used cooking spray; instead of the instant minced onion, he used 1/2 onion; instead of the garlic salt, he used 2 cloves of garlic; he also forgot to include the tomatoes but it was still delicious. We served it over brown rice. It was quick and easy.

This recipe was really yummy and easy too. My kids liked the sausage and I added chicken too. The biggest thing was that my VERY picky husband loved it, but score. I will make this one again.

This is a tasty dish. I followed the recipe as is with a few substitutions. I sauteed the zucchini in olive oil instead of margardine. Instead of minced onion, I used 1/4 cup of chopped onion. And, I used one clove of minced garlic instead of the garlic salt. I served it over some brown rice. My family and I really enjoyed it.

The sausage in this dish give it SO much flavor. This is an excellent dish.

Good Lord is this tasty. I used smoked turkey sausage and one can of diced tomatoes drained. I browned the sausage in a little Cajun seasoning for extra spice. It reminded me of Etouffe without the seafood. I think some sauteed shrimp would be excellent in this dish as well. It's one of my new favorite meals.
