a delicious dish made in one skillet with beans, smoked sausage, and vegetables. This has been a family tradition for so long that I can’t even recall where I first found the recipe. When we go camping, we always bring it. It’s a favorite among my teenage daughter’s friends. Serve with French bread and a green salad.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the carrots celery onion and garlic; cook and stir for a few minutes until the onion is transparent.
Add the sausage to the skillet and cook for a few more minutes to brown.

Cover and reduce the heat to low.
Simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender.
