Sausage and Vegetables
Sausage should be healthy because it is so good.
Since it isn’t, I try not to eat it often.
I drain all the fat off after it is cooked.
This is the only way I can justify enjoying it so much.
One pound crumbled Italian sweet sausage out of the casing.
One large chopped onion
One diced jalapeño . This is optional.
4 cups spiraled butternut squash
1/4 cup water
4 cups chopped Kai Pan
4 cloves chopped garlic
4 tablespoons olive oil
crushed red pepper
Put one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan.
Add the sausage and onion and cook till the onion is soft and the sausage is brown,
I just keep stirring everything in the pan so it doesn’t stick, like stir fry.
Take the meat out of the pan, drain the fat off and keep warm.
In the same skillet add 1 1/2 tablespoon oil and two cloves of garlic.
Cook for two minutes then add the squash and water.
Stir fry for 5 to 6 minutes on medium high till the squash is cooked but not mushy.
Add salt and black pepper to taste.
Take out of the pan and keep warm.
In the same skillet add the last 1 1/2 tablespoon oil and the two cloves of garlic.
Cook for two minutes then add the kai pan
Stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes until the leaves are slightly wilted
Add salt and red pepper flakes to taste
Portion it out onto plates or serve it family style with a chunk of bread or rice.
