I was weary of trying this after reading the negative review, but I went ahead and made it and my boyfriend and I absolutely loved it. We used smoked Kielbasa sausage and added fresh garlic, red and green pepper, lots of fresh cracked pepper and salt, and cheddar cheese. We also melted a little cheese on the top. Yum! A great, hearty meal that's inexpensive and quick to clean up from--it all goes from the cutting board into one bowl.
