One Pan Show: A Quick & Easy Dinner Recipe
Quite a few of the recipes I post require dirtying up a few of pieces of cookware, mixing bowls, and bakeware. If you’re anything like me, sometimes you just don’t want to spend that much time cleaning up after your meal. What’s a girl to do in this world of complicated culinary madness?
It’s times like these that a one skillet meal really does the trick. This recipe is anything but difficult and requires only a cast iron skillet, a cutting board, a sharp knife, and a serving spoon. Not bad, right? I chose to use tri-colored bell peppers for this recipe; once cooked they turn into juicy morsels that are just bursting with flavor from the sauce and sausage. The best thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t take long to make at all! Within 45 minutes you’ll have a bubbling, delicious Italian Sausage Potato Skillet meal that just begs to be eaten with corn bread or honey hoe cakes.

- Vegetable oil

This recipe just proves that to eat well you don’t have to slave away in the kitchen, dirtying up all of your wares. Much like pasta, the leftovers for this one skillet dish are even better the next day. Next time you’re strapped for time try this recipe; if you don’t, you’re missing out on all of the flavor that could be!Until Next Week,
