This easy and flavorful skillet recipe is one you'll want to put in your regular rotation. It's healthier than using pork sausage and makes for a quick weeknight dinner, and works well for meal-prepping. I like to serve mine over steamed rice.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook turkey sausages until they begin to brown and firm up, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to a cutting board and let cool slightly before cutting into 1/2-inch-thick diagonal slices; they will not be completely cooked at this point.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same skillet over high heat. Quickly stir-fry onion until it begins to brown, about 1 minute. Add peppers and continue cooking over high heat, stirring constantly, until peppers begin to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overcrowd the skillet in order to get a nice char on the vegetables. Mix in garlic and cook for 1 minute.

  • Return sausage, and any accumulated juices, to the skillet. Season with crushed red pepper, salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium. Stir to combine and continue cooking until sausage is no longer pink in the center, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

I sometimes use hot Italian turkey sausage instead of sweet.

Quick, easy, light, and tasty I served this over rice and it was good. We did need an additional side dish. I think this would go well as a brunch item with scrambled eggs and toast. Read More

Ok, so I made this with a mixture of sweet and regular Italian sausage (I prefer it to turkey sausage; it's a texture thing). Very flavorful and delicious. I will make it again but, with a sauce per my wife's suggestion. SUPER EASY to make! Read More

This recipe was good. I made it as written and ate it over rice. The turkey sausage I used broke out of it’s castings which make them look a little uglier, but still tasted good. I think it could have use a little sauce of some sort to go with this dish. I’ll make this again. Read More

Very easy to make and very tasty. A great Keto dish! I didn’t have Italian turkey sausages so I used a chicken sausage I had on hand. It still turned out great. This is a recipe I will be making again! Read More

I made this as my main course for dinner, and my whole family loved it! This such an easy recipe with lots of room for your own creativity. I had some squash to get rid of, so I diced that up and added it along with the peppers. I also used turkey sausage patties instead of links, and they worked absolutely fine. It’s hard to beat a recipe that is this simple and also healthy! It’s a mainstay for me, for sure! Read More
