Country-style sausage and peppers
½ pound(s), sweet or hot Italian links, pricked with a fork
1 Tbsp, exra-virgin
1 pound(s), package, refrigerated, and partially cooked cubes
Sweet red pepper(s)
2 large, or green, seeded and cut into 1⁄2-inch-thick strips
Uncooked red onion(s)
1 large, thickly sliced
1 large clove(s), finely chopped
¼ tsp, freshly ground
- Bring the sausage links and water to a boil in a large nonstick skillet. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook, turning the sausages occasionally, until well browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer the sausages to a plate. When cool enough to handle, thinly slice.
- Add the oil to the same skillet, then stir in the potatoes, bell peppers, onion, and garlic. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are tender, about 12 minutes. Return the sausages to the skillet and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Yields 1⁄2 sausage link with 11⁄4 cups vegetables per serving.
