When I get really busy during the week, I have to have something that is quick and easy to make. And though a big pot of chilli or a casserole can make a fast dinner or a lunch to go, I found I got tired of it after a few days and would rather buy something on the way home than have the same thing for dinner.

So I came up with this mix. One big pan full of sausage, veggies and flavor! This is now my weekly staple. Every Sunday I make this and use it throughout the week. I make omelettes, pizzas, flat breads, wraps, frittatas, and pastas. Having this is the fridge means I can always make something yummy in no time.

sausage with peppers and onions



  • 1 italian sausage
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 1 green onion diced
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • 2 large cremini mushrooms sliced


  • Remove casing from sausage and add to a frying pan on medium heat. Break up sausage and let fat melt.
  • Add red onions, let soften slightly.
  • Add mushrooms.
  • Once mushrooms are cooked add the red and yellow peppers. Fry for 5 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and add the green onions.
  • Let cool completely and keep in a plastic container in the fridge for up to a week.


You may have noticed that I didn’t add any seasoning to this dish. That is because the sausage I used is full of flavour and lightly seasons this dish for me. Plus I add seasoning to whatever dish I’m making with it. 
I like to use a hot Italian sausage. It has so much flavour from the herbs, heat from the spices, and the salt is just enough to season the veggies.
I always try to buy meat that is from local farms with ethically raised animals. That is something that is important to me and I find this care and quality shines through in their products.
