Helllllllo, hump day! It's almost the weekend, people - you can make it! What do you have planned for dinner tonight? Are you feeling stumped for a dinner idea? Wanting to cook something healthy but don't have the energy for a complicated or long recipe? Well, I have the answer for ya in this post!
Healthy dinners don't have to be hard.
Healthy dinners don't have to be expensive.
Healthy dinners don't have to be time consuming.
Healthy dinners CAN be easy!
This dinner can be prepared in just one pan, which means less clean up - woooo! All you'll need for this dinner is a package of chicken sausage, your favorite tomato sauce, and some veggies. I like Trader Joe's chicken sausage since it comes in a variety of flavors and the ingredient list is minimal, which is always a good thing! I also chose to use: 4-5 garlic cloves, a half of an onion, 1 red bell pepper, asparagus, and mushrooms, but you can use whatever veggies your little heart desires!
I chopped up the ingredients that I just told you about, and then I added about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to my pan with the garlic, onions, and red peppers. I let those hang out in the pan by themselves until the onions started to become translucent and the peppers began to soften. After that, I threw in the sausage (I cut it into slices before putting in the pan) and the asparagus. I let those ingredients cook for a few minutes and then added in my last veggie, mushrooms.
It's that easy, pals! After that, just put some on a plate, top it with your favorite tomato sauce, and enjoy! I paired it with my usual salad and homemade dressing (find the recipe HERE) and it made for a delicious, healthy, and easy meal.
Try this recipe out tonight or jot it down for a meal for next week! I promise you won't be disappointed :)
What's your favorite easy and healthy dinner? I would love to hear your ideas! Let me know in the comments!
