This Smoked Sausage and Zucchini Skillet and a quick and easy meal on it’s own, or is fabulous served with rice or pasta.
Have you ever had an idea for something you wanted to make for dinner, and it turned out way better than you anticipated? Yeah, this was one of those.
It was one of those nights where I had vegetables in the fridge that had to be used up and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. I’ve been really into cooking meals in my new cast iron skillet (I seriously love this thing) and I knew that the smoked sausage would add some really great flavor.
HOW TO MAKE SMOKED SAUSAGE AND ZUCCHINI SKILLET
1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
1 tsp minced garlic
1 pound smoked sausage, cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/4 inch pieces
1 zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/4 inch pieces
1 yellow squash, cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/4 inch pieces
2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
1 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt (if desired)
Heat a 12 inch skillet over medium heat.
Melt butter in the pan, then add the diced onion; stir and cook until onions are soft.
Mix in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds before adding the sliced smoked sausage.
Cook until sausage is browned; about 7 minutes.
Stir in the veggies and seasonings and cook another 7 minutes or until zucchini is tender (soft, but still has a bit of crunch to it).
