Easy One-Skillet Dinner Idea
This sausage and potatoes skillet recipe is my take on the classic Italian sausage, onions and peppers. Traditionally you should let the onions and peppers cook until both are nearly translucent and then add the sausage. But there are tons of variations of Italian sausage and potato bake. But in this recipe we mix it up.
A twist on the classic this one skillet dinner dinner recipe is also easiest meal you’ll make all week. Promise. Add onions, red peppers and arugula for a flavorful and easy weeknight meal.
What Kind of Sausage Should You Use?
Everything you need to make this one skillet dinner at home can be purchased at Trader Joe’s. If you like your sausage spicy, Trader Joe’s also has a hot sausage or vegetarian alternatives. I like the sweet chicken sausage. It’s mild, but full of flavor. Any sausage you choose can work for this skillet idea.
Other Easy Dinner Ideas To Try
This one skillet recipe also adds potatoes and arugula. You can skip the arugula if you’re not a big fan, but it happens to be one of my favorite greens.
I add arugula to a lot of our meals, for that extra peppery flavor. It’s really the most delicious green in my opinion.
Make this Sausage Onions and Peppers Recipe in the Oven
Don’t want to make the sausage and potatoes skillet? Use the oven instead.
To make the sheet pan sausage peppers onions and potatoes chop all of your veggies and then toss them in the olive oil, salt and pepper and garlic then lay on the sheet pan. Add sliced sausage and cook for about 30 minutes or so at 400 degrees.
This would also be a great choice if you wanted to make sausage and peppers in the oven for a crowd if you were going to have a party.
