This meal made me smile...maybe it was me cooking with a smile that made me happy. It was my interpretation of the mediterranean succotash with Italian sausage on a bed of arugula.
I am on a mission to use every single item in my fridge and pantry before the next grocery shopping trip, so I pulled together this little concoction. Sometimes those meals are the best. And it was Kiki approved, which of course is the most important thing. Instead of arugula, Kiki had mashed potatoes.
This really was very quick and relatively healthy meal. I first sautéed the red and orange pepper, then added a cup of frozen corn, and at the end added Al Fresco Italian Sausage and stirred it all together for about 10 minutes on a medium-high heat. I added a pinch of salt and pepper, but the sausage is spicy enough that you really don't need it. Knowing that Kiki likes things well seasoned, it was just perfect.
Operation "Fridge Clean-up" is working well both for my figure and my wallet. There are only a few things left but I am learning how to maximize and utilize everything I have on hand. My house is never without staples - pasta, rice and some protein, it's just a matter of learning how to put the odd and ends together and make it a meal.
I am already thinking what to make for tomorrow...
