Really good. Cajun flavored sausage is hard to find though and the stuff that I found was really tough. I'll just have to get different sausage next time. I usually make Zatarans boxed version and add turkey smoked sausage. This was better with the vegetable chunks.

your recipes sound so good but those of us with medical problems or those trying to lose weight can't use them. they have no nutritional info with them. could this be remedied?
