Sausage with Peppers and Onions

This recipe is one of my go to's for when I can't think of anything else to cook.  It's pretty easy and it only requires a few ingredients, which means a short grocery store trip.  Pair it with some tofu pasta and you're good to go.  This is also a good one to make if you are feeding a lot of people or trying to make enough for leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day.  You can multiply (or half) the recipe as many times as you want to get the perfect amount.

1 pack of Johnsonville apple chicken sausage
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1/2 of 1 yellow onion
2 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp pepper
2 Tbsp oregano
1/2 Tbsp crushed red pepper
4 Tbsp olive oil

  1. Add 2 Tbsp olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium high.  
  2. Cut peppers and onions into thin strips.  Add to skillet and cook until vegetables begin to soften.  
  3. While veggies are cooking cut sausage, on a diagonal, into slices.  
  4. Add sausage and remaining olive oil to skillet and stir with rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  5. Add garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano, and crushed red pepper to skillet mixture and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.  
  6. Once vegetables are cooked though, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until sausage begins to brown, stirring occasionally with spatula.  
  7. Once sausage has browned on both sides and vegetables are soft, recipe is ready to serve.  
  8. Serve hot, with Parmesan cheese or hot sauce if desired.  This recipe makes 3-4 servings.  
Cutting sausage on a diagonal means more surface area.  This allows
the sausage to soak up more spicy goodness.  

These things are good.  You can get ones that don't have apples for less
carbs.  I love the apple ones so I'm willing to spend some of my daily
carbs here.  Other flavors include spicy, cheese, etc.  

Everything into the pot.  Give the veggies a 5 or 10 minute head start.
The sausage is precooked so you're really just warming and browning it.
