      Wonderful! Thank you so much for letting me know. I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe. Have a wonderful week Laura!

  2. Do you think some greens; kale, collards, or chard, would work well in this dish? I tried it with squash a few weeks ago and want to make it again, but I’m in need of some greens!

  3. You had me at smoked sausage, tomatoes an okra but the other ingredients just makes it sound even more delicious

    Made this last night – one of the tastiest dishes I’ve tried in a long time! Made it with sausage I had on hand and canned okra and tomatoes (I know fresh would have been better), but I used what I had, and it still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this recipe today for dinner,,, it went over great…. so easy, so tasty,,,, would make this again. Thanks
