Well, talk about easy! What caught my eye about this recipe was it used a box of Scallop Potatoes, which I happened to have 2 of in my cabinet and needed to use. I can't believe how little attention this dinner required. Chop some kielbasa, throw everything in a pan, and let it simmer...awesome! And it only took 30 minutes start to finish! Now, don't get me wrong, there's no culinary genius going on here, but it's fast, it's tasty, so what's not to like? Heath said it reminded him of something he'd make back in college. A collection of 'Hmmmm, let's see, what have I got in the fridge and cabinets that I can throw together?'...I though it was a little better than that, but whatever :)~ The main reason I'll be making this again (aside from the fact that I still have another box of scallop potatoes in the cabinet), is it turns out Jesse LOVES Kielbasa. He hardly touched the broccoli (which is definitely strange), liked the potatoes, but had seconds of the kielbasa! Can't argue with those results!

2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 box (4.9 oz) scalloped potatoes
2 cups sliced fully cooked Polska-kielbasa sausage (from 1-lb ring)

2 cups frozen broccoli florets
In 12-inch skillet or 3-quart saucepan, heat water, milk and margarine to boiling. Stir in contents of uncooked potatoes and sauce mix pouches (from potato mix box). Add sausage and salsa; stir until well mixed. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in broccoli. Cover; cook 8 minutes longer or until potatoes and broccoli are tender (sauce will thicken as it stands).
