How to make our simply delicious sausage & spinach skillet:
Simply Delicious Sausage & Spinach Skillet (Only 4 Ingredients!)
- 1 sweet yellow onion thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper sliced
- 1 pound mild Italian sausage
- 3 cups baby spinach chopped
- Sauté onions (we use coconut oil) in large skillet on medium heat for about five minutes until they start to caramelize.
- Add bell pepper and continue to sauté until the pepper slices soften.
- Add sausage; use wooden spoon or spatula to chop in pan. (Optional: add a splash of Mirin, Japanese cooking wine, for a touch of sweetness.)
- Once sausage is fully cooked, remove pan from heat. Add spinach and stir into cooked ingredients. The steam alone will lightly wilt the spinach to the perfect consistency.
