Sausage, onions, peppers, potatoes... Oh my

Oh and sorry for the photo quality. The batteries in my camera died after one photo...

Sausage and peppers... A staple of Italian American homes and street fairs everywhere. Typically they are a oily, mushy mess on a roll. I took the traditional recipe and made healthier and tastier. At least I think so. Of course, next time I am at a street fair, I will probably get the original. But until then, here's my version....

Sausage, peppers, onions and potatoes

1 package of turkey sausage - sweet
5 peeled white potatoes – sliced into thin rounds
Bell peppers – 2 cups – mixed colors
1 large yellow onion – chopped fine
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
1 ½ tsp of paprika
Salt and pepper
Olive oil - about 2 tbsp

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large pan, place a layer of potatoes. Generously cover with salt, pepper and parsley and paprika. Drizzle Olive oil over the potatoes. Place in over and bake for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, place the peppers and onions on top of the potatoes. Add paprika, salt and pepper again. Then place the sausages on top and return to the oven for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, remove the pan. Take a sauté pan, add a small amount of olive oil and heat on medium high. Place the sausage in the pan and brown on both sides. Remove from the pan, slice into slices and serve on top of potato and peppers.

Serve with crusty Italian bread.

Makes 4-6 servings.
