Sausage & Pepper Medley

I so seldom cook with sausage.  It's actually kind of a shame but I also regard 'non-lean' meat as kind of a treat.  Plus, sausage & peppers are one of my favourite combinations.

Recipe is from Better Homes Test Kitchen.
Yields 6 servings.
204 calories per serving.

1 lb uncooked turkey sausage links
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 medium bell peppers (I used 2 green, a red, & a yellow), seeded & cut into strips
1 large onion, thinly sliced & separated into rings
14.5 oz diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 c parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, cook sausage links over medium heat for 5 - 8 minutes, turning frequently.
Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, & cook for about 10 minutes.
Transfer links to a cutting board & cut into smaller pieces.

Add olive oil to the same skillet & increase heat to medium.
Add the garlic & cook for 30 seconds.
Add peppers & onion; cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add sausage, tomatoes, oregano, & crushed red pepper.
Bring to a boil & reduce heat.
Let simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese to serve.
