As for the water thing, my rule of thumb anytime using the crockpot is to make sure there is enough water to cover everything. I have done this recipe twice... Unless you're using a really spicy Kielbasa (which I did and it worked great) this recipe definitely needs some spices. However, I always added a little S & P (Salt & Pepper). Any good cook knows you need some salt to bring out the natural flavors of any food. When I used a regular Kielbasa I added a bayleaf and some parsley. (Parsley & garlic are the two main ingredients in kielbasa!)

I rated this a 2 because I believe the water amount is off. 4 Quarts? It was weak. I was wondering if it should be 4 cups? My hubby had to save the recipe and "doctor" it up with some spices and such.
[CDKitchen Note: I think I'd have to agree with you - 4qts seems like it would yield a very weak soup given that there are no other spices. But 4 cups doesn't quite seem like enough for the soup since it has 1 1/2 lbs of sausage? Anyone else have ideas?]
