Italian sausages, peppers, and onions - just thinking about it makes me hungry. However having a street style sausage and pepper sandwich just isn't in the cards for me most of the time since they normally pack in close to 900 calories per sandwich. Luckily using a leaner chicken or turkey sausage with lots of vegetables, you can make a delicous substitute at home that is sure to make any weeknight dinner special.
For this dish, I wanted to stick with classic Italian flavors so I opted for sweet Italian sausages, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, onions, and mushrooms paired with garlic and Italian seasoning. I usually add some red pepper flakes as well and top everything with Parmesan cheese, lemon, and fresh basil. If you wanted to go the sandwich route, you could easily use half a serving and stuff it into some delicious bread.
Looking for a side dish for this meal? Here are some recipes to consider - creamy spinach polenta, cauliflower potato mash, Parmesan cauliflower mash, simple spaghetti squash, garlic spaghetti squash, or creamy ricotta spaghetti squash.
