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.
