Measure and prep all ingredients.
Prepare the potatoes. If the potatoes are pre-packaged, microwave them according to the packages’ directions. If not, quarter the potatoes and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 4 minutes on high. Set aside.
Cut the sausages into 3-inch pieces and set them aside.
In a pot over low heat, add the olive oil and bacon. Render the fat from the bacon for 3-4 minutes and then add the cut sausages. Cook for 4 minutes or until the sausages are browned.
Remove the bacon and sausages from the pan and increase the heat to medium. Add the diced onion, Italian frying pepper, roasted red pepper and thawed artichoke hearts. Stir and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
Return the reserved potatoes, bacon and sausage to the pot. Add the chicken stock and bring the mixture to a simmer. Add more chicken stock if needed to reach the consistency desired.
Cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Sprinkle with the fresh herbs and serve hot. Enjoy!
- Sausage and bacon can easily be substituted with turkey, chicken and even vegan sausage. The potato stew will be just as good.
