Summer Vegetables with Sausage & Potatoes

Standard

Hey!

What’s going on? My Man is in the process of pulling out the last of the summer plants. We’ve had quite a bit of jalapeño, green, red and what I think are  hungarian or banana peppers. I figured I should cook something delicious with them!

Look at these beautiful colors!

I made this absolutely delicious and healthy meal…

This was absolutely amazing! It was even healthy! Pair it with a piece of thick bread and you are set!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb baby red potatoes, cut in half or quartered
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 14 oz Italian chicken sausage, sliced 1-inch thick (I used turkey sausage)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, smashed with the side of the knife
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares (I used banana peppers)
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares ( I didn’t use these!)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary (or other fresh herb such as thyme)
  • 2 cups zucchini, 1/2 inch thick and quartered

Directions

Place oil and potatoes in a large, deep non-stick skillet with a tight fitting lid on high heat; season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. When the skillet gets hot and starts to sizzle, reduce heat to low and cook with a tight lid on for about 20-25 minutes,shaking the pan occasionally to prevent the potatoes from burning. Remove from heat and let them sit 5 minutes without removing the lid.  Set potatoes aside on a dish.


Add the sausage to the skillet and saute on medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally until browned but not quite cooked through, about 10 minutes. Seasonchopped vegetables with salt and pepper. Add onions, peppers, garlic and rosemary to the skillet and mix. Continue cooking stirring occasionally until onions and peppers become slightly browned. Add zucchini and cook an additional 5 minutes, mixing as it cooks until cooked through.

Return the potatoes back to the skillet and mix well. Adjust salt and pepper as needed; cover and cook 5 more minutes.

Easy and amazing!

Besos,

Flor
