Expert Tips

Stir in 1 package (4 ounces) frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed, with the sausage in step 3 and heat through.

Shrimp used to be considered taboo for people watching their cholesterol levels. Not anymore! Studies show these low-fat shellfish do not raise cholesterol levels after all. (Assuming they're not fried or dripping in butter!)
