1. Melt 1 tsp. butter in a 10-inch nonstick heavy skillet over medium-high heat; add sausage, and cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes or until sausage is well browned. Add tomatoes, next 4 ingredients, and 1/2 tsp. Creole seasoning. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender and most of liquid has evaporated. Remove from skillet.
2. Whisk together eggs, parsley, and remaining 1/2 tsp. Creole seasoning.
3. Melt 1 tsp. butter in skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat, rotating pan to evenly coat bottom. Pour one-fourth of egg mixture into skillet. As egg mixture starts to cook, gently lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so uncooked portion flows underneath. Cook until almost set (about 1 minute). Cover skillet, and cook 1 minute.
