Smoked Sausage-and-Vegetable Pile-Up




This recipe was found in WW 5 ingredient 15 minute recipes. I chose to bypass the "15 minute" part and instead of buying pre-chopped veggies, I chopped my own. This is supposed to be an alternative to those "all-in-one" bowls that they have at KFC and the likes but much healthier.


-Ingredients-

Cooking spray
7 oz smoked turkey sausage, diagonally sliced
1 c chopped onion (I used red)
1 c chopped bell pepper (I used yellow)
1 c sliced zucchini (I sliced them into half-moons)
1 20 oz package refrigerated garlic mashed potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes)
2 c frozen whole-kernal corn

-Directions-
1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage; saute 2 minutes or until browned. Remove from skillet; keep warm.
2. Return pan to heat' recoat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, bell pepper, and zucchini. Coat vegetables with cooking spray; saute 5 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown.
3. While vegetables cook, heat potatoes according to package directions.
4. Add corn and cooked sausage to onion mixture. Saute 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve sausage mixture over mashed potatoes.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 c sausage and vegetables and 1/2 c mashed potatoes).
