    realy enjoyed it, thanx for a great recipe  -  26 May 2011


    Used different ingredients. didnt have any passata so used mushroom and tomato pasta sauce  -  26 May 2011


    I'm close to giving this recipe a 2, which is rare for me. I'm pretty easy to please. I will not prepare it again without some modifications. As is, it's too dry. I may cut the kielbasa in smaller chunks for wider disbursement. I thought the taste was rather generic, and would benefit from some stronger flavors like garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, etc.  -  26 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
