A savory stew of roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and chicken Italian sausage. Serve over a mashed root vegetable puree, such as Paula Deen's smashed rutabagas, parsnips and potatoes recipe, or just plain mashed potatoes. Delicious and hearty. (You can find the root mash recipe on Food Network's website.)
