Kyle's Polish Sausage and Potatoes...with Carrie's Extra Junk Tossed In

Kyle first made these potatoes for me last August just after we were married.  I quickly discovered that I like them best with some onions and bell peppers tossed in the mix.  Kyle thinks I'm crazy, but give it a try and jugde for yourself.  It's a one dish dinner that couldn't be any easier to whip up.

Kielbasa and Potatoes
serves 4

2 tbsp butter
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into uniform 1 inch pieces  (you can also use 6-8 medium sized red potatoes with the skins intact, but note that these cook a bit slower)
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 link of kielbasa, cut into 1/4 inch wide disks
1/2 large onion, cut into large bite-size petals (refer to photo)
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
water, as needed

1.  Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Then add the potatoes and seasonings, tossing to evenly coat the potatoes.  Allow to cook for about 5 minutes with constant supervision to ensure the potatoes don't stick to the pan.  

2.  Add some water to the pan (about 1/4 cup) along with the sausage disks.  Toss to combine.  The water will help ensure the potatoes and sausages do not stick to the pan.  Cover and continue cooking for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep the mixture from sticking.  Add small amounts of water as necessary.

3.  Then throw in the onions and peppers, and continue cooking uncovered until the potatoes and vegetables are tender.  (About 10-15 more minutes.)  When the potatoes and veggies are tender, and the last of the water has cooked away, remove from heat and serve.
