Italian sausage with peppers and tomatoes

My husband and I were having a hard time deciding on what to make for dinner this week. We went through our recipe box and pulled out the recipe his cousin Carol gave to us on the day of my bridal shower. We decided to give it a go. I bought some turkey sausage for myself, because I'm not a huge fan of Italian sausage, while my husband is so he bought Italian. Needless to say my sausage was super tasty! I'm sure many of you have had this meal before, it's so simple, yet very tasty! Thanks Carol! We only made minor changes to this dish.  This dish is also so versatile, you can do anything with it. I should also probably start giving my husband more credit, seeing as he's been doing a lot of the cooking lately. Thanks babe!

Italian sausage and peppers
1 tbsp olive oil
4 sweet Italian sausage links sliced
14oz can diced tomatoes or fresh
salt and pepper to taste
10oz frozen spinach (thawed, squeezed dry) I would just use fresh! Nothing beats fresh
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
Angel hair pasta or rice
Fingerling or baby red potatoes, diced
Parmesean cheese

I think next time we make this we will add the rice and a little bit of chicken stock! In a large saucepan heat 1 tbsp of olive oil. Slice 4 sweet Italian sausages and add to skillet. Brown them and drain. Add one 14oz can diced tomatoes (or fresh) with their juice. Add salt, pepper and a pinch of sage. Cook about 10 minutes. Stir in a 10oz package of frozen chopped spinach. We omitted this part, I'm not a huge fan of frozen spinach, you may also use fresh, but my husband doesn't like it at all. Maybe one day I can convince him to love it...probably not! Stir in sliced bell peppers and potatoes. Cook about 5 minutes. Serve over rice or pasta and sprinkle with Parmesean cheese. Enjoy!

Hubby would love this. I'll show him the recipe. I could eat it without the meat. Looks yummy!
