Rae's Kielbasa Stoup

Rachel K.


One night I was searching for a great dinner to put together for my Husband and Myself and we didn't have much of anything. I found the green beans and kielbasa and thought to myself, "My grandma used to make a casserole with kilebasa and green beans, wouldn't it make a great STOUP!" So I proceeded to search my fridge and cabinets for the remaining ingredients that bring this stoup together! Everyone who has had it absolutely LOVES IT!
