Sausages and Peppers

1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausages
1/2 cup water
2 green bell peppers, cut into bite-size pieces
1 onion, cut into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large skillet, bring the sausages and water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the sausages are no longer pink.

Remove the skillet from the heat. Drain off the water and sausage fat. Add bell peppers, onion, garlic, tomatoes and seasonings to the skillet and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender. Serve right away.
