  • Cut onions and peppers in to thin strips (julienne slices).
  • Mince 3 to 4 cloves of garlic or measure out 1 Tbsp of pre-minced garlic.
  • Chop basil into small strips (about 1 inch in length).

  • Fry sausage in oil over medium-high heat until all pieces have turned brown.
  • Add peppers and onions, season with salt and pepper to taste, and fry with sausage for 2 minutes.
  • Add garlic and fry for 1 more minute.
  • Dust the mixture with 2 Tbsp of flour (this step is optional, and will create a thicker sauce) and stir for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth and stir mixture for about 30 seconds.
  • Turn heat down to medium-low and add cream. Stir to combine.
  • Slowly bring cream to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
