Ingredients list for the One-Pot Sausage and Veggies
- 2 cups baby red potatoes, rinsed and quartered
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
- 1 zucchini, halved and sliced
- 1/2 onion, sliced
- 9 ounces smoked sausage, sliced (not ground sausage)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

- Fresh parsley, chopped
1. In a heavy bottomed pot (we like our cast-iron!), heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the baby red potatoes to the pot and season with salt and pepper. Fry until golden brown and cooked through, around 8-10 minutes, stirring a few times. Remove potatoes from the pot and set aside.
2. In the same pot, brown the sliced sausage for around 5 minutes in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat. Remove the sausage from the pot and set aside.
3. Add onion and garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes with remaining cooking oil. Add the bell peppers and zucchini to the same pot and season with red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, until softened, stirring occasionally.
4. Add the cooked sausage, and potatoes potatoes back to the pot and mix everything together. Add chicken broth and cook for 5 minutes more. Adjust seasoning and garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy! ♥︎
