Hot & Flavorful

You guys know how I love my easy-peasy dinners!

Tonight’s dinner was no different.

Ryan and I made a hot and flavorful meal of Italian sausage with green peppers and onions.

Sausage + Onions + Peppers

Though it had to cook in the oven for approximately 45 minutes, the prep work only lasted five. It was a set-it-and-forget-it kinda meal!

I simply chopped up two large green peppers and one onion, and cut up three large Jennie-O sweet lean Italian turkey sausages. I cut the sausages with scissors because chopping them with a knife would cause the meat to squeeze out of the casings. Once everything was ready to go, I combined everything, sprinkled it with salt and pepper, and placed the mixture in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

The result was a fragrant and delicious meal.

Dinner is Served

Sadie really wanted a bite, but onions are a no-go for dogs, so she did some tricks to earn some dog-safe treats!

"Gimme, Gimme!"

Though the treat made her happy, she instantly returned to begging for our human food… not that I blame her. 😉

Now it’s time to do some dishes, read and hopefully get in bed a lil’ early tonight.

See ya in the morning!

  2. You’re dinner looks great! I just wanted to tell you that I took a boot camp class tonight (it’s sorta equivalent to body pump since my gym doesnt offer that class) OMG sooo INTENSE. Thanks again for motivating me and inspiring me!!

  3. I love easy peasy dinners. Who wants to waste tons of time slaving away in the kitchen when you can make something simple, healthy, and delicious with a fraction of the effort? Not this girl….sometimes I like to spend lots of time cooking, but only on days when I have the time. On weekdays, fast and easy is the name of the game.

  4. Sadie’s adorable! And sausage and peppers is one of my favorite meals! I cut my sausage semi-frozen – scissors is a great tip – definitely trying that next time.
