Tonight’s dinner was a classic Italian one pot dish- Sausage and Peppers.
I make mine using turkey sausage and it is a great substitute.
Turkey Sausage and Peppers with Potatoes
8 turkey sausages (hot or sweet, I usually use both)
6-8 medium bell peppers
7 small/medium onions
6-8 yukon gold or red skin potatoes
Salt, pepper, red pepper flake, garlic powder, paprika
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Cut up the peppers and onions. (I like to put a garbage bag next to the cutting board to put the pepper stems and onion skins in.)
Put some olive oil in the bottom of a roasting dish
Add the peppers and onions
Cut the potatoes into wedges and add them to the pan
Season liberally and then toss to coat
Add the sausages in, and nestle them into the veggies
Put a little more olive oil on top, and then cover the roasting pan with tin foil
Cook covered for 1 hour, and then uncovered for another 25 min. I also broil the dish for the last 5 minutes to get a little crisp goin on.
Serve on rolls or just as is. We like to add some hot sauce
It’s also one of those meals that can serve a huge crowd, and is also better the next day!
It’s a win/win!
Attention vegetarians! You could also use these methods and leave out the sausages (or use veggie sausage). If you just go for the veggies, maybe add a little more red pepper flake and paprika and perhaps a dash of fennel seed.
Do you have any one pot favorites?
What foods do you think taste better the next day?
