One-Skillet Cheesy Sausage and Peppers

This one-skillet meal is, by far, one of my favorites! The flavor can easily be adjusted to your personal tastes based on the heat of your sausage and the peppers used. If you’re not a fan of red, orange, or yellow peppers, feel free to substitute green peppers.

The mixture is tasty enough to eat on it’s own or wrap up in lettuce leaves. Other options include tortillas or over a bed of rice. It’s super-quick and easy to whip up this recipe in one skillet and put on the table in about 25 to 30 minutes.

Ingredients & Tools You’ll Need:

One-Skillet Cheesy Sausage and Peppers

Instructions:

Heat a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced sausage to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, approximately 7-8 minutes.

Transfer sausage to a platter and carefully drain all but one tablespoon of grease from the skillet, if needed. Add the onion and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and starts to develop some color, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Increase heat to medium-high and add the sliced peppers. Season lightly with additional salt and black pepper, if desired. Cook, stirring frequently, until the peppers are crisp-tender and start to char, approximately 3-4 minutes. (Do not overcook or the peppers may become mushy).

Return the sausage to the skillet and stir to combine. Remove from heat and top with the chopped parsley and Provolone cheese slices. Cover and let sit for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.

Remove lid and serve immediately with your choice of wraps and/or side dishes. Enjoy!
