  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, julienned
  • 2 cups chopped green beans

Step 1

Sliced the Italian sausage diagonally and saute them in a pan with oil over medium-high heat. Cook them until they turn golden brown. Once the sausage is cooked through, add the chopped onion, garlic, red bell pepper, green beans, and button mushrooms. Give everything a good toss to combine. Season the sausage mixture with 1/2 tsp basil, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1 tsp ground black pepper, and 1 tsp salt. Give everything another quick tossing and turning.
