This is a fast and easy meal. I used my black cast iron spider for this and next time I will add the oil to help brown the potatoes. I know, sausage is high in fat, but we love it.  You could use a a lower fat product and they are available and are very good. I am looking for recipes that are camper friendly and this is one that I think would be. You can adjust the ingredients and make enough for one meal.  One pot, one can and a few extra's to make a wonderful filling dinner. This summer we are renting a cabin in Baxter State Park in northern Maine and I will plan to make this meal for us.  I was a bit surprised at the taste. It's very good.  Make the beer bread I posted a little while ago and you have dinner at the cabin.  Scrumptious! Thank you Maureen and Gooseberry Patch for this recipe.

1 1/2 lb of Italian Sausage, cut in bite size pieces
10 red potatoes, quartered
1 tsp of good olive oil
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped ( I used Italian seasonings)
1 cup sliced onions
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
14 1/2 ounce can Italian-style stewed tomatoes

In a large skillet, over medium high heat, add the olive oil then add the red potatoes, cook these until they have started to brown a little then add the bite size sausage pieces, the spices and stir frequently for about 10-15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook until the potatoes are tender and the sausage is cooked. Remove the cover and stir in the remaining ingredients, cook uncovered until the peppers and onion are tender. Serve piping hot. Makes 4-6 servings.
