Simple Skillet

Meet weeknight cooking at its best! Combining a few flavorful ingredients (turkey sausage, onions, garlic) with pantry staples (crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning) and utilizing a simple cooking technique (grab that skillet), this recipe builds flavour with every step.

Here’s what we mean: Onions and peppers are sautéed in the drippings left behind from cooking the sausage. Aromatic garlic and Italian seasoning get added toward the end, so they have time to bloom (open up) without getting overcooked. Acidic tomatoes help release any flavor stuck to the bottom of the pan after the other ingredients have been cooked, to the benefit of the entire dish (and the dishwasher!). So the end result is a single-dish dinner alive with richly spiced sausage, silky cooked vegetables, and swimming in a tomatoey pan sauce.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 lb turkey sausage links, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced onions
  • 2 medium red, yellow, or green bell peppers, cut into strips (about 2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink and completely cooked (at least 165°F). Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate, and keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium; add onions and peppers to drippings. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in garlic and seasoning; cook 30 to 60 seconds or until garlic is fragrant.

Stir in tomatoes and sausage; heat to simmering, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cook uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes or until completely heated through.

Garnish with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.

You can serve this just on its own, or cook up your favourite pasta and serve this on top!
