Directions

  1. Place sausage in a large heavy skillet with a close-fitting lid, add water to cover and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  2. Let cook (uncovered) until all the water evaporates.
  3. Continue cooking turning the sausages so that they brown well on all sides and don't stick.
  4. Pour off any excess fat and add the onions, bell peppers, celery, salt, peppers, and an additional 1 cup water.
  5. Stir well scraping bottom of the pan to loosen any bits of sausage that may have stuck.
  6. Reduce heat, cover, and let cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  7. Remove from heat.
  8. Remove sausages and let the juices sit 5-10 minutes (allows grease to rise to the top), skim and discard the grease (if you like a thicker gravy stir in the roux and let simmer 20 minutes more).
  9. Add the sausage and the green onions and parsley and simmer uncovered for 3-4 minutes more.
  10. Serve immediately.
