Weekday suppers around here can sometimes take on a yard sale effect. Not exactly leftovers but more like fridge, freezer, pantry use ups. That BOGO chicken sausage deal sounded so good at the time, but now the one I paid for -I always eat the free one first, I know but let me have my small victory – sits in the freezer and its not getting any younger.
I see a little bit of couscous or rice or orzo hanging around that’s not enough for a full dish makes me think, casserole.
This is a quick, easy casserole that’s light yet satisfying. You can use any kind of sausage or even tofu.
- 1 pound chicken sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 large red pepper, cut into strips
- 1 large green pepper, cut into strips
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup couscous
Brown sausage in oil over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add peppers, onions, seasoning and broth.
Cover and simmer until sausage is fully cooked and peppers reach desired texture. I like my cooked peppers a little on the crisp side.
Stir in couscous, cover and remove from heat. Rest it about 5 minutes until liquid is fully absorbed.
Fluff and serve.
By the way, wouldn’t Fluff and Serve make a great brand name?
