    This turned out very well. I followed instructions and it tasted great.

    Made some substitutions to suit our personal tastes (Itlaian sausage instead of andouille). It is now a favorite winter dish. On the menu again for Fat Tuesday on 2-17-2015.

    I felt the directions were somewhat confusing but it is Jambalaya and can be thrown together. My picky 14 year old would not try it, but my fiance and I loved it. It is on our make again list.
