add sliced roasted red peppers ( from a jar), 1 bunch of chopped of scallions, a few springs to thyme, 2 tsp of minced garlic and 1tsp of red pepper flakes. Saute for a few minutes to marry the ingredients.
Add the cooked, sliced sausage and simmer till the stew thickens to desired thickness. Serve warm with garlic bread ! Polenta would be a great gluten-free option for a side with this stew. I would also consider making the stew with shrimp instead of chicken. Eggplant and butternut squash would be a great vegetarian alternative.
