Sausage, Peppers and Sweet Onions

I like to experiment with the different ways to make this dish. I make a really good version with mango's, but I couldn't find good ones at the store. This is a great dish with minimal preparation.

  • 1lb chicken sausage, cut into half inch pieces (I used al fresco garlic chicken sausage, but I usually use trader joes mango chicken sausages.)

  • 2 peppers, one red or orange, sliced thin

  • 1 large vadalia onion, sliced thin

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley

  • 1 Tablespoon chopped garlic

  • 1 cup tomato sauce

  • salt and pepper

  • cooking spray

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add sausage and brown. Add in peppers and onions, salt and pepper and cook until the veggies are soft, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn down heat and add in basil, parsley and garlic. Saute for about 2 minutes. Then add in tomato sauce and stir til heated through. Serve with wheat pasta or brown rice, or by itself!
