sausage & potatoes...

3 tsp olive oil
1 onion; chopped
4 med red potatoes; chopped
16 oz light sausage link; sliced in 1/2 in pieces
1 clove garlic; minced
salt & pepper
parsley; chopped

Heat olive oil in pan over med heat. Add potatoes & onions and season with salt & pepper. Cook over med heat (stirring frequently) until potatoes are tender & browned. Add garlic and sausage & cook until sausage is browned a little. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

This just became a new favorite! The leftovers for lunch were even better! When you use light or turkey sausage this really is a low fat meal, and VERY filling. The only thing I would change next time is to par boil the potatoes first. Just cooking them a little before (you could even do that earlier in the day) really cuts down on the cooking time. Because I didn't do that it took about 15-20 min for them to cook through, and I put a lid on to trap the heat & speed it up a little. AND...the parsley isn't just for color. It really adds a great, fresh taste to the dish!

I made this for dinner tonight and it was really yummy! I never would've thought to put the sausage and potatoes together. Thanks!

I made this dish the other night. My husband had thirds, which is saying a lot! I served it with a side of baked beans.
