Sausage Ratatouille

Recipe inspired by one I found in Family Fun - took out the onion and replaced the eggplant with yellow squash. And made some other changes. Ya know, like we all do.

  • 14 oz sausage
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 2 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 to 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 14 oz cans diced tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1t dried parsley
  • 2t dried basil

Slice the sausage and cook in a large skillet - about 2 minutes on each side over medium heat. Transfer sausage to plate (leave all the delicious sausage juice in the skillet). In the same skillet saute yellow squash and zucchini in 3T olive oil for about 7 minutes, then transfer to plate. Put 1 T olive oil in skillet, saute bell pepper for 3 minutes, add garlic, parsley, basil and sausage saute for 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, zucchini and squash. Partially cover skillet and gentle simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt n pep. Serve with french bread, pasta or rice.
