DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy pot that is NOT nonstick (I use Magnalite) brown sausage.
  • After sausage is browned, remove from pot and add onions and bell pepper. Cook on medium-high heat in fat rendered from sausage (add butter or olive oil if needed) until wilted; about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic and cook a few more minutes.
  • Add sausage back to pot along with chicken or which ever protein you choose, except if using shrimp).
  • Add all remaining ingredients except green onions and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn't stick to bottom. Reduce heat, cover, simmer for about 25 minutes, until pasta is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed. If using shrimp, add it at this point.
  • Remove from heat, stir in green onions. Serve hot. French bread is delicious with it and you can sop up the sauce.
