Sometimes it’s about the food…

2014-08-19 18.43.24Many people I talk to want to know how to make a fast meal that is healthy, many of those people don’t like to cook; that is the reason I share many of my meals here.

I recently made a meal that while it doesn’t look healthy,  it is. My son was over for dinner and although it is August, the air was cool, nice actually so I didn’t mind using the oven. I made sausage & peppers with tomatoes, onions and mushrooms. The sausage might not sound healthy but they were organic chicken sausage with Italian spices, a pretty good choice for a comforting meal.

Here’s the recipe:

Baked Italian Sausage & Peppers (the amounts can vary depending on how many people you’re serving)

4-12 links Italian chicken sausage cut in half on bias

2-4 bell peppers, red and green

1 large onion – 1/4″ slices length-wise

1-2 cups mushrooms, sliced

1-5 cloves garlic, sliced or chopped

8 tomatoes cut up into large chunks or 28-oz. can whole, peeled roma tomatoes cut up

1/2-1 cup wine

Herbs such as basil, oregano, rosemary, mint, sage, thyme, chili pepper flakes…etc.

Combine all ingredients in a large baking dish or pan with high edges. Bake at 325° for 1 1/2-2 hours. Serve over or alongside brown rice, quinoa, small pasta or as is with a crusty bread and a leafy green salad and other fresh vegetables.
