1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat an 8 or 9 inch square pan with cooking spray.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned and cooked through (approximately 5 minutes).
3. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes.
4. Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Add the yellow and green peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
5. Pour the marinara sauce into the pan. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes or until sauce has started to thicken.
6. Pour the sausage mixture into the greased pan.
7. While the sausage mixture is cooking, prepare the biscuit topping. In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder and salt.
8. Add the butter and buttermilk into the flour mixture and stir just until a dough forms. Add the parmesan cheese and stir to combine.
9. Place large spoonfuls of the biscuit dough on top of the sausage mixture for a total of 4-6 biscuits.
10. Place the pan in the oven and bake until biscuit topping is golden brown, approximately 12-15 minutes.
11. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
