DIRECTIONS

  • Take a large nonstick skillet and heat the oil using medium high heat. Add your chopped onion, lower the heat to medium/medium low, stir and cook until the onion begins to brown (this may take a while).
  • Once the onions are browning add the sliced bell peppers, stir and cook until the bell peppers soften, about five to ten minutes. Add your sliced sausage and cook until the sausage begins to brown. When the sausage has browned a bit, add your garlic, stir and cook for just a minute or so, when you can smell the garlic cooking you are ready for the next step (be careful not to brown the garlic as it will become bitter).
  • Add the spinach, oregano, cumin, Cajun seasonings, paprika, salt and pepper, stir your seasonings into the mixture (NOTE: depending on your Cajun Seasoning you may want to adjust the quantity, more if your seasoning is fairly mild, less if your seasoning is strong, I use Olde Westport Cajun which is a medium intensity, the seasoning mix can be purchased online).
  • Cook for one minute, add the can of tomato sauce and stir well, when mixture begins to bubble lower heat and cook for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring every so often.
  • Serve over rice or noodles. (I serve over Risotto).
  • Enjoy : ).
