So, on to happiness! I had some ingredients around the house and threw a delicious dinner together. I didn't time myself or measure very closely, so feel free to adjust as you see fit.
Sausage & Peppers
1 lb. pork sausage
1 each red, green, & yellow pepper
1 red onion
3 garlic cloves
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
splash red wine
Clean your peppers and slice into fairly large pieces and quarter your onion seperating the layers. Chop your garlic cloves into small pieces. When cutting your peppers, slice the top off and pull out the stem. Save the pepper around the stem b/c it's still good!!
Heat 1T olive oil in a pan and brown your sausage on all sides. Remove the browned sausage from the pan and set aside. Deglaze the pan with a splash of red wine (a dry white would work too). Add the peppers, onions, and garlic to the pan and drizzle 2T olive oil over the veggie mixture, add more if needed. Cook down until soft and starting to become translucent around the edges, which should be about 20 minutes or so, depending on how thick your pepper slices are. While your peppers are cooking, slice your sausages on a diagonal or regular...the diagonal slice makes me feel like I'm eating at a restaurant.
After the pepper mix is cooked, add one can of fire roasted tomatoes and the sliced sausage. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce thickens and the sausage finishes cooking. This was a tasty and easy weeknight meal! Enjoy!
Note: You will probably notice that I did not add any salt. I felt like the tomatoes and sausage contained enough salt that the cooking process didn't require anymore.
Here's a pic of the tomatoes:
My thought for the day is for my momma and anyone who has lost someone they love.
