Made some changes needed to increase the flavor of the dish, and with those changes it can be great! I took one star off because without those changes, i think it would be a quite bland. Used Bacon grease instead of OO to give the vegies a little porky flavor, and when the beans were halfway done I added 4 slices (with half of the recipe) of diced uncooked center cut bacon to them. At least doubled the cayenne, added 3x more garlic, added tabasco at the end, used rubbed sage because that's all I had, fresh parsley and thyme because I prefer it. ( no need to waste time stripping the thyme stems of their leaves, just throw the entire thing , stem and all, in there and take them out when its done, the leaves will have boiled off into the stew) had no cajun seasoning so honestly I just put things like paprika, oregano, cumin, red pepper flakes, and fresh rosemary, salt and pepper to make up for that ingredient. I doubled the bay leaves, crushed one to put in there and put the whole leaves of the rest, couldn't find adouille sausage so just used smoked. With these changes the dish was DELICIOUS. but if I were you I'd just add the herbs/spices stated and adjust to your taste afterwards. Make sure to add more herbs and spices if you end up (like I did) adding a lot more water. Also I think the entire recipe would only yeild 4-6 servings tops, not 8. I think I might try homemade chicken stock in the place of half of the water instead next time!
