Andouille and cous-cous - A romantic comedy

I accidentally bought some andouille sausage. I meant to buy tomato basil chicken sausage. I'm thinking, "What am I going to do with this?"

I made some cous-cous with pine nuts, according to the directions.

In a skillet heated to medium high I put chopped red pepper, sliced baby bella mushrooms, and sliced up andouille.

I squeezed half a lemon over them while they were heating. I meant to salt them, but I picked up the black pepper instead, and liberally peppered everything...OOPS!

I stirred everything in the skillet until it was almost heated, then added a half-teaspoon of minced garlic (not dehydrated). If you add the garlic too soon, it will scorch and smell and taste bad.

The heat brings out more or the sweetness of the peppers, and the lemon and garlic do amazing things to the mushrooms. AMAZING, I tell you! The pepper made it all spicier than I normally eat, and actually I don't use much black pepper, but it was pretty tasty.

I served it with a little bit of cottage cheese to cut the bite of the pepper.

A great mistake!
