Easy Peasy Sausage Mealsy

Posted on

I have been wanting to share this “recipe” with my readers for a while, but have hesitated because it’s not quite a recipe. In fact, it’s really just a combination of simple ingredients that when cooked together in under ten minutes tastes delicious! This healthy and filling meal is one of my staples for when I come home late from work and don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. And although I’ve never served this to someone else, I almost always make two portions so I can have some for lunch the next day.

Italian Stuffed Pita (serves 2)

  • 2 pre-cooked chicken sausages, any flavor but preferably Italian-style (I use Aidells brand)
  • 1 bell pepper, red or green
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 8-10 brown cap mushrooms
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (to taste)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 whole wheat pitas, cut in half

Slice the sausage into 1/4-inch rounds. Chop the onion, pepper and mushrooms into similar sized slices.

Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over a medium flame. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and onion and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add the sausage, mushrooms, bell pepper, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and continue to saute for 5-6 more minutes, or until the sausage is browned.

I usually heat my pita in the microwave for time’s sake, but you may also heat it in the oven or toaster oven. Fill each pita half with a spatula full of sausage, pepper, onion and mushrooms. And that’s it… an easy, healthy and timely dinner.

I had a little leftover 2007 JAQK Cellars “Bone Dance” Merlot that I enjoyed this with. You could also opt for a hearty Pinot Noir, a light Cabernet, or a good German beer.
