Italian Sausage with Sautéed Onions and Peppers
6 links mild/hot Italian Sausage or Turkey Sausage (better the quality, the healthier it will be)
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pam Olive Oil Cooking Spray
1 Large onion sliced to preference I ( I typically slice thinly however this will reduce cooking time)
2 Green/Red/ Yellow Bell Peppers (FYI the Green peppers are cheaper)
Salt and Pepper
Spray large skillet with Pam cooking spray and Sauté Sausage over medium high heat until cooked 3/4’s of the way through. About 5 min a side. Remove Sausage from pan and add Olive Oil. Immediately add Peppers and sauté until soft. About 7-10 minutes. Add Onions and cook for additional 5 minutes. Return Sausage to the pan and continue cooking till Sausage is cooked through.
Tip: Finish cooking Sausages in the microwave to save time and to ensure they are cooked through. Also, cooking time for peppers and onions is up to the chef. If you like them more raw then cook less. etc. A good carb option is adding brown rice. You could also substitute Turkey sausage if Italian isn’t your thing.
