Sausage with Peppers and Onions.....healthy style

Mom went to Uncle Guiseppe's yesterday and picked up some Chicken Sausage. I have to check the nutritional information on it, but it has to be better than Pork Sausage. Going through the refrigerator and pantry I decided to make Mom's old Sausage and Onion Casserole, only Healthy style. Instead of the Pork Sausage I will be using chicken sausage. Instead of frying up the onions and peppers, they get sliced and baked in the oven with the sausage. Its pretty easy, and mom always made it when we were kids.
Mom's Sausage with Peppers, Onions and Potatoes Healthy style:
1 package Chicken sausage about 5-6 links cut into bite size peices ( approx 5-6 a link )
3 medium onions peeled and large dice
2 bell peppers (any color) large dice
6 medium potatoes large dice
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Cut the sausage into approximately 5-6 pieces per link. Peel and cut the onion approx same size as the sausage. Wash and chop the potato into approx 6 -8 peices per potato ( approx same size for everything ).
Wash and remove seeds and ribbing from bell peppers and large dice. Place in stainless or glass baking pan and spread out,toss with olive oil and salt and pepper Make sure everything is lightly coated with oil. Dont overcrowd. Bake at 350degrees for about 45 minutes covered. Remove cover, and bake another 20-30 minutes until browned and somewhat crispy. Make sure when serving - each person gets onions, peppers, potatoes and sausage. Delish! A new twist on an old favorite! and Remember.....Life is full of Tasty Morsels!
