Lean Italian chicken sausage with summer bell peppers and zucchini sauteed with baby red potatoes and fresh herbs for a quick one pot meal.
- 1 lb baby red potatoes, cut in half or quartered
- 2 tsp oil
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- fresh cracked pepper
- 14 oz Italian chicken sausage, sliced 1-inch thick
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 4-5 cloves garlic, smashed with the side of the knife
- 1/2 orange bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
- 1 red bell pepper, diced 1-inch squares
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary (or other fresh herb such as thyme)
- 2 cups zucchini, 1/2 inch thick and quartered
- Place oil and potatoes in a large, deep non-stick skillet with a tight fitting lid on high heat; season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
- When the skillet gets hot and starts to sizzle, reduce heat to low and cook with a tight lid on for about 20-25 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent the potatoes from burning.
- Remove from heat and let them sit 5 minutes without removing the lid, then set the potatoes aside on a dish.
- Add the sausage to the skillet and saute on medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally until browned but not quite cooked through, about 10 minutes.
- Season chopped vegetables with salt and pepper. Add onions, peppers, garlic and rosemary to the skillet and mix.
- Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions and peppers become slightly browned.
- Add zucchini and cook an additional 5 minutes, mixing as it cooks until cooked through.
- Return the potatoes back to the skillet and mix well. Adjust salt and pepper as needed; cover and cook 5 more minutes.
