Made it with chicken and apple sausage. It's one of the more flavorful slow cooker recipes I've tried.

This is easy and very good. I freeze peppers from our garden, and use use in it in winter. I have made it with bulk italian sausage, which I brown first.

I'm making this for the second time. My family and I loved it. This time I'm using Adele's chicken and apple sausage. I'm sure it will be just as good.

Absolutely loved this! Didn't have the exact type of sausage. Used basic chicken & turkey sausage, cooked and drained it well. Didn't have any mustard in the house either but I had Honey mustard sauce and used that. Wonderful! Reheats well too. Thank you!

I substituted lemon for the vinegar, used 1-12 oz package of Field Roast Vegetarian Italian Sausage with eggplant and fennel (4 links to package). I would use 1/2 the mustard for next batch. I also added dry crushed red peppers and cajun season to spice it up. Thought it was great.

I made this recipe after it was posted on the website, and it was not. good. I followed the instructions to a T and the end result was very sweet, vinegary and mustard-ish tasting. Just bleh. Piling lots of feta on helped a little, but I definitely will not be making this again. The general concept (sausage, quinoa, peppers, and aromatics in a slow cooker with some broth) still has some appeal to me, so I may try that without all the other add-ins sometime in the future....
