Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2004

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 sausage link, 1/3 cup bell pepper mixture, and about 1 cup potato)

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds red potatoes, quartered
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 hot Italian turkey sausages (about 1 [19 1/2-ounce] package)
  • 3 bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375º.

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer in a roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon oil, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Toss to coat. Bake at 375º for 40 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.

While potatoes cook, heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pierce the sausage casings several times with a fork. Add sausages to pan; cook 5 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove sausages from pan.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in pan. Add bell peppers; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon of salt, vinegar, rosemary, and crushed red pepper. Return sausages to pan; cover and cook over medium-low heat 15 minutes or until the sausages are done.
