Chef's Note

If you do not have a large oven safe skillet, you can cook everything in a large skillet and transfer to a 9x13 baking dish before placing in the oven.  


** MAKE AHEAD: To make ahead, brown the sausages according to the recipe and place everything in a slow cooker over high heat for 4 hours until the vegetables are soft and the sausages are cooked through.
