One Pot Spaghetti and Sausage
I had Italian sausage that needed to be cooked. I also had homemade stewed tomatoes that my daughter made, from tomatoes in her garden. Also had basil from her garden. So I was winging it. And yes! It worked. Delicious!

1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup sweet peppers, chopped (green bell or other)

2 teaspoons dried oregano

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Pinch of crushed red pepper
