    Easy and excellent! IF YOU HAVE A GRIP ABOUT THE SODIUM, LEAVE THE SALT OUT AND QUIT WHINING!!! You can also use low salt or sodium free salt. - 5/3/08

    While it may seem high in sodium, SP ingredients don't take into account that we can rinse the canned beans. Its also taking into account the sausage & tomato sauce. A third your daily calories (its a meal, shouldn't it be?), about 1/2 daily sodium.. so eat less sodium throughout the day. LOVE IT - 11/17/08

    Looking forward to trying this! Try making your own sausage (or just brown turkey and add remaining to the pot).To 1-lb lean ground turk.add 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp rubbed sage, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp ground ginger. Instead of criticizing,why not ask for help in changing what doesn't work for you? - 5/21/08

    You extreme "health-nuts" should know right away that this is going to challenge a sodium content, etc. BUT, ya know, a little variety in life doesn't hurt. It's not like you are gonna have this dish every day! Will try it when I have some time to make it. Can it be made in crockpot? - 5/21/09
