Nutritional values are estimated.This will be almost like a pasta dish as a lot of the broth will be absorbed. We have used our 6 quart and 8 quart for this, it will not fit in the 3 quart as written.For cooking the kielbasa, see above in the post about information regarding deglazing. Your inner pot will have burnt stuff from cooking the kielbasa, do not panic. You will see the burnt stuff come off as you are cooking the onions and when you add the broth. It will add flavor and it will come off the bottom by adding a about 1 quarter cup of the broth while on saute and stirring constantly.
