EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Kielbasa, also called Polish sausage, is smoked pork sausage. The ring or links are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. This recipe calls for turkey kielbasa, smoked turkey sausage which contains about 2/3 less fat than regular smoked sausage.

Substitute 2 cups of fresh sugar snap peas for the frozen sugar snap peas.

Use smoked all-vegetable protein sausage instead of the turkey kielbasa.

Use Mexican-flavored cheese product instead of the regular cheese product.
