Smoked Sausage and Potatoes

We used to make this dish quite a bit, as it's one of Nate's favorites. We decided to make it this week, because we had a bunch of potatoes (both regular baking and purple (SUPER purple!) potatoes) from our last CSA box to use up as well as some leftover smoked sausage from a German soup we made in October (don't worry, it's been in the freezer since then). We also threw in about half a yellow onion we had (also from the CSA box).
The recipe is really easy, and it always makes enough for tasty leftovers. Here's what we did:

We cut up the potatoes (five or six of them? They were all different sizes) into pretty small chunks and tossed them with some spices, including garlic powder, pepper, crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper. We cooked them over medium in a skillet with some olive oil for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
We then added the chopped onions and sausage we cut into halves (below) and then quarters.
We cooked it for a bit longer (about 5-7 minutes (just need to have the sausage heated through)) and voila! That's all. We served the sausage and potatoes with a side salad.
