    Chocolatl's Note:

    I make this as a one-dish meal on the stovetop. I normally don't add salt, because the sausages are salty enough without it. Yes, the onion and bell pepper are listed twice, because they are cut differently and added at different times.

      Cramped as I was for time yesterday, cooking for the 2 of us as well as for a neighbor couple, I decided to make to main entrees & take half of each over to the neighbors, giving me & mine a chance to taste both ~ Worked out just fine, too! Did a little juggling on this one, as I left out the canned mushrooms, used 2 mild sausages & 2 sweet ones, & cut the red pepper flakes down to just 1/8 teaspoon! As for us, we loved it that way, & apparently the neighbors did, too! Will certainly be making this one again! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      My boys really enjoyed this because it was spicy! We can not eat green peppers but I diced up a roasted red pepper and I think it added to the color. I used half hot sausage and half mild sausage. I also added the shrimp in the last five minutes of cooking. Really good. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.

      This is delicious!, I made it with all the ingredients stated but with some amount adjustments, not sure what the chicken livers added to the recipe it must have done something great, I used bulk spicy pork sausage meat in place of the sausage links, and increased the chili flakes to well over a tablespoons, I sent home the rest with my DS in a doggie bag so he can enjoy the leftovers although I must say there wasn't that much leftover, thank you for a wonderful recipe and one I will make again Pat!
