Roasted Potatoes, Turkey Sausage and Peppers

Have you checked out Gina's Skinny Recipes? If not, you need to. Now. Seriously. What are you waiting for?!? There are tons of yummy recipes on her site. They taste great and they are good for you. How's about that?? I decided to make Roasted Potatoes, Chicken Sausage and Peppers. I did not use chicken sausage and settled with turkey sausage. We don't have anything as fancy as chicken sausage where I live. :o)

I didn't actually read the entire post Gina put up. I chopped everything up and threw it on the pan all at once. Half way through, I drained the water off from the peppers. I also put it under the broiler for 5 minutes at the end so it would be more of a roasted taste and not steamed.

This was very good. Even though I used sweet Italian sausage, we ate the leftovers with eggs. HOLY SMOKES! My tummy was pretty happy.

  • 1.5 lb (about 3 large) potatoes, russet or new
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered, layers separated
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp chopped rosemary (fresh or dry)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 lb Italian chicken sausage, cut each link into 6-7 slices
Chop everything into one inch pieces. Toss with olive oil, rosemary and garlic powder. Spread evenly in pan and bake at 375 for 45-60 minutes.

**Remember- This is not how Gina did it. Hers probably worked out better. I was just much too lazy to actually read the entire post. Hey. It happens!
