This is a very spicy, hot, Creole dish that I first had while staying with friends in "Naw'lins". The spiciness/heat can be adjusted to your tastes by using a milder sausage than suggested and cutting down on the amount of hot pepper sauce added. Its wonderful served over rice. This recipe doubles well for larger groups. (1 hr 15 minute cooking time includes browning the sausage and cooking the veggies.) Andouille, Creole Hot, Chaurice (New Orleans style Creole)or Italian Hot sausage work best in this recipe.
