Quick church night dinner

quick church night meal This is what I made tonight just before we left for church.  It was quick, simple, yet very tasty.  Please forgive the mini cucumber with a bite out of it.  I didn’t think of posting this until I had started eating.

  1.  Scrub (in soapy water) and rinsed 6 medium red potatoes and cut them in large chunks.
  2.  Cut one pound Italian sausage into chunks.
  3.  Cut up peppers.  I only had green.  Yellow and Red ones would be nice and colorful.                                                                                                                                           INSTRUCTIONS:  Put about 1 Tbsp. oil in a skillet that has a tight-fitting lid.  Heat on medium.  When oil is hot drop in potatoes and sausages.  Put the lid on the pan and cook about 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are soft.  Stir with a stiff spatula a few times during cooking.  This will help you to scrap sticky residue off the bottom of the pan, but there will be some sticking to the bottom. You might be tempted to add more oil or some water, but you don’t need to do this.  Next add peppers and cook about 5 minutes longer.

I served this dish with a mini cucumber and a piece of french bread.

I have found that the easiest way to get stuck on stuff off my cookware is to put a little water in the bottom of the pan, cover,  put it on a hot burner until the water begins to boil, then turn the burner off.  Let it sit for awhile and the stuck on stuff will be easy to get out.

This dish is good for those times when you don’t really have anything planned, but you have these ingredients on hand.  If I’d had broccoli I could have added that the last 5 minutes of cooking. Any vegetable you like that you know would cook in about 5 minutes would be great!

Do you have a quick “throw-together” meal that you would like to share?

    A good friend of mine has this recipe as a quick “throw together” meal option. I think you might want to pick up a couple items she mentions, and sometime this next week when you can’t believe it’s already time to feed your family again, try this quick meal. (You might like following her blog, too, or purchasing her cookbook that has ten meal plans.)
