  • Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add olive oil to pan.  Add bell pepper, sausage, and garlic to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until bell pepper is tender, stirring occasionally.

  1. I'm making this recipe this week-end. What are your thoughts on someone with high cholesterol eating shrimp? What do they say about cholesterol in shellfish these days?
