Smoked Sausage and Veggies Recipe

May 24, 2011


One thing I have noticed a ton lately is that my taste buds have been changing dramatically.  Just even over the last several months (since Ethan was born).  I have begun to love peppers (still not green ones…) and onions, and guacamole.  And for the first time in my life, savoring salsa’s.

I was at Sam’s Club and they had this recipe on display to show their kielbasa smoked sausage – and I was just blown away by what I ate.  So I bought all the ingredients; came home – and cooked it for dinner.

1 Kielbasa Smoked Sausage – sliced (I like Turkey Kielbasa!)
1/2 Red pepper – cut into chunks
1/2 Orange pepper – cut into chunks
1/2 Yellow Pepper – cut into chunks
1 sweet onion – cut into chunks
1/2 can chunk pineapple in pineapple sauce – drained
-OR- 1 peeled apple cut into thin slices

Obviously you can substitute any of the ingredients; remove pineapple if you don’t like it; add more pepper – all one color or multiples; less onion – whatever you like! I do whatever I have on hand.

Simply – cook on medium-high.  no oils – the sausage has enough fat and flavor to get the veggies tender and browned.  I like to cook with a non-stick pan for about 15-20 minutes; until the veggies are tasty and a little softer but sautéed to a nice brown crisp.


This is one of my favorite go-to last minute dinners; and it’s so refreshing and colorful for summer days and gloomy days alike!


***UPDATE*** We still make this quite often: I definitely much prefer to get the Turkey Kielbasa vs. the Beef. I also like to cut up an apple into thin slices and add it to the mixture – it adds a great flavor!

  1. Looks yummy!

  2. If you skip the pinnaple and add spaghetti sauce once the vegetables are cooked thru enough, then serve over spaghetti noodles, You will die and think that you have gone to heaven! That is my favorite.

  3. Looks yummy! I didn’t think of adding spaghetti noodles, but I think the girls might try it if I did fruit for the side dish. Thanks!

  4. Looks easy and YUMMY!

  5. That would be a quick trade for beef stir fry and I could add the broccoli!
    Thanks for sharing!

    I have made similar but never put the pineapple. I need to try it with that as well. Thanks for sharing!

  7. There is noticeably a bundle to realize about this. I assume you made various nice points in features also.

  8. This is just the thing that my hubby and son would love. It looks so good and easy too, which I love!!!

    I just picked the last of my green peppers so I think this could be a winner for dinner.

    This looks really good. I buy Smoked Sausage often but never know what to do with it. I would love to try this recipe out. I love peppers and pineapple.
