This is a yummy dinner, especially if you are a gardener and make broccoli. What to do with those broccoli leaves? Did you know you can eat them? I made a recipe last season for the first time and loved it. Here's the recipe: Spaghetti with Broccoli Leaves Recipe. This time, I am going to do another favorite in our home. This sausage peppers and broccoli leaves recipe is so easy to make. Great for those weeknight meals.
Sausage Peppers and Broccoli Leaves Recipe
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 cups broccoli leaves (chopped)
1 large yellow pepper (sliced)
1 large orange pepper (sliced)
1 cup cherry tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic sliced or minced
1 lb sausage (pork or turkey)
1 tsp dried thyme
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut up the broccoli, tomatoes (if you want), and the peppers. Then, add 1 Tbsp of olive oil into hot skillet. Cut up the sausage into one-inch pieces, and then add it to the oil. Then add the veggies.
Here's what it looks like after it is almost finished cooking completely.
Then add the tomato sauce. And let the tomato sauce heat through a few minutes. Be sure to stir in the tomato sauce.
And, here's the finished dish. I served it on a bed of rice. You can use instant or regular whichever works for you. I like it with a bit of parmesan cheese or romano cheese on top. Yum! Let me know if you try this recipe by coming back and commenting. I would love to hear from you.
