Good ole southern cooking can be healthy too!

I love okra. LOVE it. I don't know how else to make my point without using caps on that. I grew up on my Maw Maw's shrimp okra gumbo, fried okra, boiled okra, and basically anything okra. I also grew up on good ole Cajun cooking, which cannot be very healthy.
So when as part of the Allrecipe Brand Ambassador program asked us to use Al Fresco chicken sausage in our own custom dish, I had something Cajun (and okra) in mind.
At first I thought I should add it to my chicken sausage gumbo, but I had a whole bunch of fresh okra in the fridge screaming at me to be cooked. My husband does not like okra added to his gumbo, but I was dying for my okra fix so I decided to make 2 main
dishes. Plus I've been trying to eat healthier too since having my baby 4 months ago. I need to lose this stubborn baby fat still clinging to my poor body. Okra + Al Fresco smoked andouille = a healthier version of my Maw Maw's smothered okra.
I prepped this dish and after an hour of slow simmering on the stove I was in heaven! It was soooooo good! (I copied down this recipe for inquiring minds here http://tempuri.org?link=new
I just wanted to thank Al Fresco for a healthier version of one of my favorite dishes.
