I make the ORIGINAL recipe from the Land O'Lakes cookbook called "Savory Crock Hearty Stew" and there is a lot more to the sauce. I think they slimmed down some of the steps to speed up the process, but why mess with a good thing? You cook the sausage (I use breakfast sausage) and veggies the same, but in a separate pan stew up whole canned tomatoes, with half a fresh chopped cabbage, a splash of apple juice (adds a bit of sweetness and counter-acts the bitter flavors), and bay leaf. By the time the sausage and veggies are done you mix in the tomato/cabbage stew into the skillet, stir and serve. It's a family classic that is hearty and delicious!
