Does this "jambalaya" recipe sound good?

I just bought a crock pot today and want to use it. I really want to make jambalaya, but I don't see many that are designed to be cooked in crock pots.

I have very little experience with cooking, so I was just looking for something easy and this recipe looks pretty easy. What do you think? Does it sound any good? Just from reading the ingredients, it almost sounds like I'm making spaghetti! lol

If not, can you please suggest a good/easy jambalaya recipe for crock pots (slow cookers). Thanks!
