Quick and easy to prepare – and very good, too.
In a large saucepan or nonreactive Dutch oven, brown the sausage over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Serve hot.
