I’ve said before that dinner time at my house is a mad dash. I have about twenty minutes to pull it all together. Add to that a fickle eater and mommy has her work cut out for her. In all of my blog reading I came across this recipe for sausage and peppers from Tina at Life Without Pink. It’s popular with her family and it looked like something I could pull off pretty quickly. The test, of course, would be the toddler. He is not a fan of meat. He really only likes seafood AND sausage. So, this recipe was a must try for the sausage alone!

I followed the recipe for the most part. I didn’t have onions in the house so I used some onion powder. Tina uses Adobo seasoning but wrote that you could substitute with garlic salt and pepper, which I did. I added a little pasta to the mix since it’s also a favorite of the little guy. It smelled so good. I was super excited to see how this would go over with the family. Since I only had 20 minutes to pull it together, I used some pre-sliced peppers from Trader Joe’s. They were frozen and actually cooked pretty quickly. The frozen peppers cut the cook time in half for me. Always looking for a cooking short cut. 🙂 All in all, this recipe was a success! My son and I ate the rest for the next day’s lunch! Thanks Tina!

Her recipe is below:

6 peppers {you can mix between red and green}

2 BIG vidalia onions

A few dashes of Adobo seasoning

A few shakes of Oregano & Italian seasoning

~Chop up peppers, throw in a pan with some splashes of olive oil.

~Add Adobo seasoning {to taste}

~Add a few shakes of oregano and Italian seasoning.

~Taste test after half hour to 45 minutes.

~Meanwhile, cook sausage on grill until fully cooked.

~Mix sausage and peppers/onions and heat through.

~Top on crusty Italian bread. (Instead of bread, I used pasta)

Try it! It’s yummy!

    That looks yummy! We had sausage and peppers last night, and I used it as pizza topping!

    If it worked for a little one, you KNOW it’s good! I’m all about the shortcuts with the frozen peppers too. I’ll give it a whirl!

    You convinced me, I need to give it a try with the pepper/sausage mix with pasta of course. My little one loves sausage and pasta and even though he never had pepper before he might go for it. Thanks for sharing.

    That looks really yummy. We eat sausage at least once a week and had it yesterday with wild mushrooms and onions. I’ll have to try this recipe!

    Sausage and peppers are definitely one of food’s most awesome flavor combos. This sounds so good!
