Sun-Dried Tomato Sausage & Peppers

One of my favorite go-to dinners is chicken sausage. There are many flavors available inspired by Italian, Latin, and American cooking so I'm never bored. And these are often pre-cooked which makes for a super easy supper. This kind of sausage is great all year and you can warm these up in a pan or on the grill in about ten minutes.

Different flavors also mean you can pair the sausages with all kinds of veggies, pasta and grains. I decided to pair this particular sausage with fresh sweet bell peppers and tomatoes. Fresh herbs and garlic really help bring the sausage and veggies together.

Sun-Dried Tomato Sausage with Fresh Bell Peppers & Tomatoes (Serves 4)

1 package Aidells Sun-Dried Tomato with Mozarella Cheese Chicken Sausage, sliced into 1-inch pieces
2 tsp. minced garlic (bottled or you can use 2 cloves)

1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon thyme, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh oregano, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped

1. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add enough olive oil to lightly coat the pan and let it warm up for 30 seconds. Add the fresh herbs; let them cook in the oil for 1-2 minutes.

2. Add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes.

3. Add the sausage and cook until warmed through, about 10 minutes.

4. Add the bell pepper and tomato. Cook until they are warm and the peppers are still slightly crisp.
