Chris & Renée's Sausage & Peppers

Monday night Chris and I made Sausage & Peppers for dinner. It is really easy to make and very yummy. First, you gather the ingredients. You will need:

Some Italian sausage (we got ours from the butcher but we also like the Premio brand)

Veggies, we like to use some red and yellow bell peppers, onion and garlic.

And some rice, we used Spanish style rice last night, but normally we use Jasmine rice.

We also cut up some cantaloupe for after dinner. It was so sweet and ripe, one of the best melons I've ever had. mmmm.

Start your rice first because that will take the longest.

Then grill and slice the sausages.

Cook the veggies in a little olive oil until tender but still a little crunchy. Then just mix the sausage in with the veggies. We simmered ours, covered, for about 5 minutes to let the juices come together and to make sure the sausage was cooked all the way through. Then, serve over the rice. Easy, fast and delicious.

that's interesting, I usually slice up the meat while raw/frozen and then throw them in the skillet with all the veggies to cook all at once. I'll have to try this "cook them separately" approach.

I remember making omelets one time where I cooked the filling separate from the eggs and then combine them on the plate... up until the last omelet. For the last one I just dumped all the ingredients in the pan with the eggs while they were still cooking... the two results tasted very different. So I've been experimenting with that lately: cooked together vs cooked separately and mix together at the very end.
