This recipe for turkey sausage and peppers is simple yet complex, filling yet healthy, and overall just plain delicious! Fresh veggies from the garden or produce section work best, but there is nothing wrong with some frozen peppers and a can of rotel style tomatoes if you don’t have fresh on hand.
Cuisine Type: Italian
- ½ lb – 1 lb italian style turkey sausage (sliced and cooked)
- 1 orange bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 yellow bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 green bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 med onion (sliced)

- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp crushed red pepper

- Add olive oil into pan you cooked sausage in. Add bell peppers and onion. Saute over medium-high heat until veggies are soft (5-7 mins). If you prefer crunchy veggies, decrease cook time.
