Added to Recipes on Wed 06/08/2011


1 package sweet Italian-style turkey sausage

4 bell peppers (red, yellow, green or orange), sliced 1/8 inches thick and then cut in half

1 very large sweet onion (Vidalia or Spanish), sliced 1/8 thick and then cut in half

1 (28 oz) can of Italian crushed tomatoes

3 tbsp of Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

Fat-free non-stick canola spray


Note: You can substitute hot turkey sausage.



Take a large non-stick skillet pan and coat with non-stick spray. Turn heat to medium setting. Put whole sausages in the skillet until browned on all sides. Remove and set aside. Drain pan.


Spray pan generously with non-stick spray and place onions in pan with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté on medium heat for 5 minutes. Place pepper slices in pan with onions and sauté for 5 more minutes.


While peppers and onions are cooking, slice the sausage into 3/4 inch thick slices. Add the sausage slices to the pan with the onion and pepper mixture.


Then add the can of crushed tomatoes, the Italian seasonings and crushed red pepper flakes. Simmer over a low flame for 20 minutes.


Serve the sausage and peppers over a cup of brown rice and a side green salad with a fat-free dressing.
