Shrimp With Sausage and Tomatoes

This weekend I was determined to try some new recipes.  I am so glad I did because this one came out glorious!  I had to leave out the peas of course.  We did have some broccoli on the side for the greens.  This was our little ode to Mardi Gras.  I was thinking I could have added some okra and it could have been really authentic.
