Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great "base" recipe; can interchange chicken for the turkey (however turkey is great), substitue... Great "base" recipe; can interchange chicken for the turkey (however turkey is great), substitue extra virgin olive oil for oil (healthier); one reader substituted brown rice for white rice, you can use this jambalya over white/wheat pasta and the sauce freezes well. Recipe has great "zip" and you can flavor to your own tastes easily without ruinning the dish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My family loves the flavor and spicy sausage with left over turkey. My family loves the flavor and spicy sausage with left over turkey. I love the quick ease of assembly. I have used chicken boulion/ stock with browning/seasoning sauce (Kitchen Bouquet) in place of the canned tomatoes for a brown jambalaya and then used the tomatoes & tomato juice with shrimp for a different version.
