Lean Italian chicken sausage with summer bell peppers and zucchini sauteed with baby red potatoes and fresh herbs for a quick one pot meal.

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)
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 4-5 cloves garlic (smashed with the side of the knife)
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper (diced 1-inch squares)
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper (diced 1-inch squares)
  • 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)

Instructions

  • 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, then set the 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.
  • Season chopped 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.
  • Makes about 7 1/2 cups.
