  • Of Food And Love: Bell Peppers and Smoked Sausage over Rice

    They say: the more colorful your meal is the healthier you’re eating.  And isn’t this a beauty?

    We love bell peppers.  Each color has its own flavor and specific dishes that it compliments.  My wonderful friend Amanda made this for me years ago and it has been a wonderful addition to our table.  Most of you know that I’m all about the “quick and healthy” with a little bit of Julia Child in the mix.  (can’t say no to her — that would be akin to sacrilege)

    D and I take great pride in the variety of foods served in our house and the fact our children eat most every dish with gusto!  Sometimes, it takes a little explaining before certain veggies are accepted, but for the most part, open minds = open mouths.

    For this particular recipe it’s really up to the general preference of the family how much to use.  To feed a family of four, use two whole bell peppers thinly sliced and one medium onion thinly sliced.  And for the sausage, take your pick!  I usually use Hillshire sausage links (one whole package will work. the sausage is in a U-shape).  They have a great variety.  We use the smoked.

    Toss them in about tablespoon and a half of olive oil until they get a little crispy.

    Once they have their crisp, throw in the veggies.  But only cook them lightly.  The crunch in the bell pepper makes the dish complete.

    Serve over white or brown rice!  We love Jasmine or Basmati.

I like your additions Misha but let me suggest to you also instead if rice you can reuse leftover pasta, browning the same as the sausage, delish!
