Chicken Sausage With Peppers

This basic recipe is easy and delicious, but the best part is how versatile it is: Serve it over rice or pasta, put it in buns, or just eat it plain!

Ingredients

    Sausage & Pepper Mixture
  • 1   onion
  • 3   bell peppers in different colors
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 4   links precooked chicken sausage
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
    Sauce
  • 1 can (8 oz. or 213 mL) tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) red pepper flakes
  • 1   garlic clove, pressed
  •  Optional: fresh chopped parsley, mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Slice the onion with the Simple Slicer on the No. 3 setting. Place the slices into a large bowl.

  2. Cut off the tops of the bell peppers and remove the seeds and veins with the Scoop Loop. Cut the peppers into quarters and slice with the Quick Slice. Place the slices into the bowl with the onion.

  3. Preheat the Nonstick Double Burner Grill over medium-high heat for 3–5 minutes.

  4. Use the Quick Slice to slice the zucchini and chicken sausage. Add the zucchini and oil to the bowl and toss to coat.

  5. Add the vegetables to the pan. Cook for 6–8 minutes, turning occasionally, until the vegetables soften and grill marks appear.

  6. Combine all the sauce ingredients in the 1 qt. (1-L) Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, covered, on HIGH, for 1–2 minutes or until hot.

  7. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan. Add the sausage and cook for 3 minutes, turning occasionally, until grill marks appear.

  8. Combine the sausage, pepper mixture, and sauce in the Large Serving Bowl (see cook’s tip). If desired, top with parsley and mozzarella cheese.
