Ragout of Sausage& Peppers

This dish came about because we were down to the bare bones in fridge and freezer. I had delicious organic honey garlic sausages in the freezer, one and half red peppers and celery. Always having canned tomatoes in the pantry saves me many times. My family licked their plates and it's become a go to meal in desperate times with whatever veggies are in the fridge.
