When I’m not feeling my best and need to whip up something easy and healthy, I turn to this simply scrumptious recipe. The hearty, smoky turkey sausage mixed with crisp sweet potatoes and soft bell peppers and onions is a delicious medley in your mouth – and really light on calories, too! Just drizzle the chopped vegetables and sausage with a little olive oil, stir in some fragrant fresh garlic, and sprinkle on salt, pepper and herb de Provence (or, just use thyme and rosemary or any Italian seasoning mixture).
Enjoy this tasty meal on weeknights, lazy days, or anytime in between. It’s an easy, mouthwatering meal with only basic ingredients and instructions!
