Did you know that peppers are at their growing season peak right now? I was over at my favorite little farm and they had a bin with the most beautiful looking peppers, so I just had to get a bunch! This dish went over big time here.

This is the EASIEST sausage and peppers recipe! It is made in one skillet, is so flavorful, and you can use chicken sausage, pork sausage, or any sausage you like! I like to find ones with minimal added ingredients.

It is flavorful, comforting, and just plain delicious with the perfect amount of sauce. A great dish for football Sunday or those nights when you need a quick and easy meal!

You can get creative with how you serve this dish! I love it served over roasted spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice but I bet it would be great with gluten-free pasta or spiralized veggies as well! This sausage and peppers recipe is Paleo friendly, whole30 compliant, dairy-free, grain-free, and no sugar added!

Sausage, Peppers, & Onions

Prep Time 00:05 Cook Time 00:15 Serves 4

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or just until fragrant.
  2. Add sliced onions, bell peppers, and poblano pepper to the skillet; let cook until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add cooked sausage to the large skillet with the peppers and onions and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and spices. Mix well.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Taste and adjust spices as desired.
  7. Serve over spaghetti squash, cauliflower rice, or gluten-free pasta!

Recipe Notes

  • *If you are using uncooked chicken sausage, remove the casing and cook the chicken sausage and garlic together in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until the sausage is brown on both sides. This should take around 5 minutes, stirring often.

    Beyond the Kitchen

    Life Lately:

    We had this AMAZING Thai brunch in Boston at Banyan. I’m still dreaming of this gluten-free sandwich on scallion pancakes.

    Earlier this week I took a few days to go on our annual spa trip with very special friends. We had the best time relaxing, laughing, and enjoying Norwich Spa and Mohegan Sun!

    Norwich Spa & Mohegan Sun

    We stayed at The Spa at Norwich Inn, then took quick 5 minute taxis to Mohegan each night. We ate at Tuscany and Bar American, and visited our favorite, Vista Lounge, both nights!

    Does it get any better than this? I can’t wait to cook through this week’s CSA haul!

    Canyon Ranch Lenox: Weekend Getaway

    Mike and I had the greatest weekend. On Friday night we drove up to Lenox, MA to the gorgeous Canyon Ranch for a little pre-birthday celebrations! We arrived late, were greeted by the most friendly staff, had a quick dinner (they packed us gluten-free cookies to-go in our room), and we went to relax before a fun-filled day ahead.

    Canyonranch2

    We woke up and explored this gorgeous place. It is so serene, quaint, friendly, and relaxing.

    Canyonranch4

    We walked down, sat on some adirondack chairs overlooking the woods and rocked (in the words of Emily from Zivamind) a 15-minute meditation to kick start a day of fitness, relaxation, and wellness.

    Canyonranch3

    Canyonranch1

    We ate phenomenal food, took awesome fitness classes, got pampered in the spa, and got to take in the gorgeous views of Lenox. At night, they have quite the epic DVD collection filled with old and super new movies. Since the lovely staff always gave us soft, delicious gluten-free cookies to go, the nights were relaxing and filled with cookies and movies in bed, something we never ever get to do!  It was delightful.

    All in all, it was truly a fantastic weekend getaway, and with all there was to do- over 40+ indoor and outdoor fitness activities daily, workshops, talks, treatments- I could totally have seen us staying for days and days! 

    The Food

    There are two main restaurants at Canyon Ranch. The Dining Room (where we ate dinner the first night and lunch the following day) and The Cafe (where we are breakfast both days and dinner Saturday night). The Cafe is new. It is farm-to-table style, and also where you can grab a snack throughout the day, a cappuccino, a smoothie, and so on. Of course, The Cafe was right up my alley and we loved loved loved it there. Especially Sunday brunch because… brunch!

    Canyonranch8

    I’m merging together breakfast (Saturday) + brunch (Sunday), because they were both just so fantastic. I started each day with an almond milk cappuccino and went from there. The accommodations for gluten/grain/dairy-free were beyond amazing. I was greeted with a full ingredient list of every single food at CR upon arrival, down to the brand of tomato sauce they use! They had three different types of almond milk, local maple syrup, coconut water for the smoothies. Everything down to the T!

    The breakfast you ordered, with the open bar to help yourself to other things, and the brunch was station buffet-style. 
    CanyonRanch_Breakfast5

    Everything was beyond delicious! We grabbed a quick lunch on Saturday, and then got right back into our day of fitness and the spa! 

    Dinner at The Cafe was a highlight for sure. I loved seeing where a variety of the food I was eating came from. What is better than that? It is so apparent how much the chefs value their food and their expertise.  

    Bravo to the CR Lenox chefs. It was truly amazing seeing your craft in action. 

    CanyonRanch_Dinner8

    P.S. There is no alcohol served at Canyon Ranch. I actually really enjoyed this little detox aspect.

    The Fitness  

    CR Lenox is different then any spa I’ve been to. It is super focused on fitness, wellness, and health out of just the food and the spa. There were lectures on sleep, an integrative medicine practice where you could actually get tests done right there, and so much more. 

    I took a circuit class, spin class, and a yoga class. Now I’m not the biggest Yogi but I am making an effort to get more into it, so I decided to take a class. Antoinette was the teacher and she was beyond amazing. I loved her nature, energy and the vibes of the class. I wish she was here in Boston! Mike took a meditation workshop, a yoga class (more intense than mine), and a kettlebell class which ended up being one-on-one since he was the only person who showed up! 

    I really loved the classes, and also loved spending time in the Women’s Spa. Sauna, steam room, hot tub, relaxation area, and more. Total bliss.

    Another highlight that we loved was the natural “sports drink” in the fitness area. Seeing the word Sports Drink you can imagine what I thought the ingredient list would look like, but I was in fact wrong! A blend of iced teas, orange juice, white grape juice, lemon oil, and sea salt. That’s it! We added a little to our waters to fuel us through the day. I think I’ll have to recreate this one for all of you 🙂

    Canyonranch

     Next time, we’ll stay for longer and get outside for one of the hikes and other activities that we couldn’t fit into our stay! 

    The Spa

    Mike and I both got massages, mine an 80-minute deep tissue and his a 50-minute Swedish. I also got a deep cleansing facial which was phenomenal. I loved the spa area of CR and the awesome, knowledgeable staff there!
