Polynesian Sausage Supper

"When my sister first served us this unusual medley, I couldn't believe how good it was because she had thrown it together so quickly," informs Laura McCarthy of Butte, Montana. "Sweet pineapple really adds to the taste."

    This is good, but a little too tomato-ey for my taste. I didn't alter the recipe and was a little afraid there was too much liquid, but the cornstarch took care of that. Tidbits would be better. Maybe even add some broccoli?

    We got uncooked sausage with castings instead of smoked sausage. I was confused and it definitely should have had cooked sausage. I think it needed a little salt. It was tasty. Tidbits would have been better for this.

    Saw this in the original 2001 magazine, have been making it ever since! I also add a chopped red pepper for extra nutrition and color.

    This was very good. I really enjoyed it. I did not change anything when making this recipe. Quick and easy to make.

    Love this dish. We have it quite often. I use the pineapple tidbits because the chunks seemed too much. My daughter uses the crushed pineapple because her family likes the sweetness all the way throughout the dish. Whichever way, I have given this recipe to many people that really like it.
