Smoked Sausage Stir-Fry

For Sandi Towne of Sauk Village, Illinois, a dish needs to look as good as it tastes. "Appearance is important," she contends. "This eye-catching stir-fry is a prime example. The colorful peppers and tomatoes contrast nicely with the sausage, and the whole thing is delicious!"

    This is pretty good. Of six of us two loved it and the others didn't like or dislike it.

    This was a very good recipe, and quite a nice change from a thick tomato-based sausage gumbo. I added some crushed red peppers and some chopped sweet chilies to spice it up a bit. I will definitely make this again.
