Short and simple. Filling. Tastes good. This recipe utilizes a product that I know is safe for us to eat. A Simply Nature Mild Italian Chicken Sausage from ALDI that is labeled Gluten-Free and Lactose-Free. Lactose-free does not mean Dairy-Free, so I have to be careful with that indication. After careful examination of the ingredients, it appeared totally dairy-free, so I decided to go ahead and prepare this easy one-skillet dish.
The good news: we’ve enjoyed this sausage in several meals now with no problems.
While we did very well with this sausage, always be careful of your food, always check the ingredients label and check with your dietitian or doctor if needed. Here’s what’s in this:
Italian Sausage, Peppers and Rice
1 package of allergen-free mild italian sausage
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 14-0z can of diced tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
2-3 dashes of your favorite allergen-free hot sauce (or a dash of cayenne pepper), optional
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare rice according to package directions. (Preferably cooked in broth for extra flavor).
While rice is cooking, add the sausage, onion, and green bell pepper to large skillet set to med-high heat with a little allergen-safe oil. Saute until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender.
Add the spices, tomatoes (with juice) and minced garlic to the pan and let simmer until flavors have melded and liquid has thickened.
That’s it. Dinner is finished. Here is a picture of the sausage and the ingredients label:
