Turkey Sausage with Peppers and Onions

I walked out to our garden this morning to see if any of out veggies were ready to go for tonight’s dinner. I noticed that one of our Italian roasting peppers as well as several Serrano peppers were set. This was very exciting! When I think of a meal that revolves around peppers, the first thing that comes to mind is sausage and peppers. Maybe growing up at the Jersey Shore in an Italian family has something to do with that! I have very fond memories of stuffing my face at the boardwalk with a giant roll covered in peppers, onions, and greasy sausage. This has all the flavor without the fat and carbs. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Serve it as is, or with a delicious side salad like this Tomato Salad with Pesto Vinaigrette.

1 package turkey sausage
1 large Spanish onion – sliced
3 peppers (use a variety of colors and heat) – seeded and sliced
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat, and grill the turkey sausage while turning occasionally until the skin has crisped – about 10 minutes.
2. While the turkey sausage is cooking, combine remaining ingredients in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until peppers and onions are tender.
3. Remove the turkey sausage from the grill, and add to the skillet. Allow to cook for one more minute to absorb the flavors.
4. Serve as is, on a hard roll, or over pasta.
