If you want a healthy and satisfying meal in a rush! You will love this perfectly seasoned mixture of sausage, onions, zucchini, and peppers. Whole30 compliant, gluten-free and dairy-free.
This reassuring meal may be enjoyed independently or you are welcome to serve it on cauliflower or traditional-rice. In any event you are likely to be pleasantly gobbling everything up in 20 minutes or less.
This Skillet Sausage and Zucchini is simple and delicous. It tastes much like a classic Italian Sausage and peppers dish however you are getting some additional vegetables in there because of its zucchini.
Use your preferred completely cooked sausage. I favor Applegate Chicken Sausage (the one by the fridge case rather than the frozen section) since their ingredient listing is amazing and I have never tried one of the varieties which I did not like.
