Freezer Meal/Double Batch Option

This recipe also freezes well, so if you’re up for a little prep fun, buy enough for a double batch.
Chop veggies and sausage for both then add half to a gallon-sized freezer bag with the Italian seasoning (so, everything except the olive oil goes in the bag).
Squeeze out all the air and lay flat in your freezer.
Label w/ the directions “Thaw, sauté with 2 tbsp olive oil, top with parmesan.”
Then you’ll prepare the other half as stated on the recipe.

You’ll have a quick dinner for now and a quicker one for later.

Italian Sausage Skillet

Yield: 5
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 12 oz packages mild Italian chicken sausage, sliced into 1 in rounds (I used the Kirkwood kind from Aldi)
  • 150g or one medium onion, diced
  • 20g or two medium garlic, minced
  • 300g or two medium bell peppers, diced (any color)
  • 500g or two large tomatoes, large diced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning


  • shredded parmesan (totally optional)


  1. Add onion, peppers, garlic, seasoning, and olive oil to a skillet over medium heat.
  2. When onions begin to become translucent (about 5 mins), add sliced sausages and tomatoes.
  3. Continue to cook until peppers are tender (about 5 more mins).
  4. If desired, sprinkle w/ parm before serving.
  5. Why do we call it serving? I'm not serving anyone. *before EATING 😉



Vegetarian: It just ends up as Italian veggies, but they're delish, so skip the sausage and make it happen.

Gluten Free:  Be sure to pick up GF sausage (most should be) and you're golden, babe.
