Italian Pride!

Yes, that’s right! Dinner Tonight: Italian Sausage, Onions & Pepper Subs! This dinner is fast & if you prep the onions and peppers the night before…its even faster 😉 One of my favorite things about going out in Boston is that I know at the end of the night I will bump into a street vendor selling Italian Sausage Subs! & what a perfect late night snack that is!! Tonight I decided to create my own, one thing that I love about peppers & onions besides the taste…is the way they leave the kitchen smelling. mmMmm MMmm good! 🙂

What you will need:

  1. 2 packs of 6 (4 ounce) sweet Italian sausage
  2. 2 tablespoons oil
  3. 2 white onions
  4. 2 garlic cloves
  5. 2 bell peppers
  6. 3 green peppers
  7. 1/4 tsp basil
  8. 1/4 tsp oregano
  9. 1/4 cup white wine

Place sausage in a large skillet over medium heat & brown all sides. Remove from skillet & slice.

Prep the onions & peppers by slicing thinly. Heat oil in skillet, stir in onion & garlic, cook for 3 minutes.

When onions start to caramelize, mix in peppers. Season with basil & oregano. Stir in white wine and continue to cook until onions & peppers are tender.

Return sausage slices to skillet, reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes, then serve on a sub!

Is your mouth watering yet? 🙂

Those street vendors better watch out, I THINK THEY HAVE A LITTLE COMPETITION!

Turkey Chili!!!!!!

Yummy, one of my favorites…turkey chili! My sister Taia hates chili so since she was working late tonight, I decided it would be a perfect night to make it considering the twins & I love it.
What you will need:

  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 2 packets of chili seasoning

(By accident I grabbed one taco seasoning 😦 )

  • 2 peppers one red, one green
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 cans of red kidney beans
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of stewed tomatoes
  • 1 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • cheddar cheese

Start by browning the ground turkey over medium heat, add garlic. Chop the onion & peppers and add to pot.

Now add tomatoes, beans, chili seasoning, tomato paste stir together & cook over low/medium heat for 20 minutes. (Make sure to stir every 5 minutes).

2 steps & your done! how easy was that? Top chili with cheddar cheese, I also added tortilla chips to my bowl to scoop the chili with! 🙂
