Quick Weeknight Dinner: Chicken Sausage and Peppers

My husband is obsessed with this quick and easy recipe. Serve with a salad and loaf of crusty bread. Leftovers are great tossed with pasta.

Serves: 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound chicken sausage (Longhini brand recommended)
1 red onion, sliced
2 bell peppers, cut into strips
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup marinara sauce
¼ cup basil, chopped
Kosher salt and black pepper

Heat oil in a large skillet; add sausage and brown on all sides. Add onions and peppers; season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes over medium high heat. Add Worcestershire and tomato sauce and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until sausage is cooked through and vegetables are tender.  Garnish with fresh basil and serve.
