Wendy's Creamy Sausage Stew

I just love the look of this before it goes in the oven to roast. It's basically peppers, onions, red potatoes and some kielbasa. This is another recipe from my Hot Providence cookbook. My husband gets kind of excited over this one. It roasts a long time in the oven, but otherwise is pretty simple. I'll post the recipe below. Wendy's Creamy Sausage Stew
10 medium red potatoes cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
2 onions, coarsely chopped
1 green pepper, coarsely chopped
1 red pepper, coarsely chopped (I used some red, some yellow)
2 lb. smoked Polish sausage, cut into 1/2 inch slices. (I used kielbasa, but would like to get some natural chicken sausage to try in it.)
1/3 cup oil
1 Tbs. dried basil
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 cups heavy cream or whipping cream
3 Tbs. cornstarch
3 Tbs. water
Put potatoes in large roasting pan. Add onions, peppers and sausage. Toss. Combine oil, basil, salt and pepper. Pour over meat and vegetables, toss well. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Stir. Pour cream over. Cover and bake 45 to 60 more minutes or until potatoes are tender. Combine cornstarch and water, stir into stew. Place on stove top and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened. (I don't do the cornstarch step. I never thought it needed thickened.)
