Brown sausage and onion in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage mixture and remaining ingredients to crock-pot. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours, or on high for 3-4. You're really only heating through, and allowing the vegetables to soften.
This will not stick together like a gloppy casserole; it has the consistency of fried rice. Use bowls to serve rather than plates.
