Heat the oil in a large, microwave-safe dish, for 2 minutes at 100%|
Stir the onions into the oil and cook for 2 minutes
Add the peppers and garlic. Cook for another 2 minutes.
1 tin of diced tomatoes
¼ cup (packed) fresh basil leaves
OR substitute dried basil
Slice the cooked sausages and add them to the mixture|
