Skillet Turkey Sausage with Peppers, Beans and Kale

By Krimkus

Turkey Sausage Skillet with Beans and KaleI’m into one skillet meals lately, and this version with smokey turkey sausage turned into the heartiest quick meal yet.

I’m one of those people that can’t resist a bargain, and for reasons unknown, turkey sausage is often on sale at our local grocery store.

I buy the leanest turkey sausage (or kielbasa) I can find, then slice it into pieces so it can caramelize with the onions in the pan. Then I toss in creamy white beans, yellow peppers, and kale for my ooomph of veggies.

It really doesn’t get easier than combining a handful of ingredients into one skillet when you’re pressed for time, or just don’t feel like cooking. And a lean sausage with its already savory spiciness, is perfect because it does much of the seasoning for you.

Switching gears for a moment, I wanted to share that I’ve become a recent convert to Craftsy, where I’ve discovered online cooking and photography classes.

I’ve become such a fan, that I’ve decided to become an affiliate partner. (You can click on the advertisement to the right for more information.) Currently I’m watching Love Your Vegetables with Anna Bullet from Cooking Light – not a big surprise, right?

I’ve attended my share of cooking classes, and even volunteered for kitchen duty in exchange for free classes. Craftsy is completely affordable compared to our local cooking classes, and I can fit classes into my schedule.

All this is to say that if you want to expand your cooking skills, be sure to check it out. They also offer an abundance of mini classes for free. You can’t beat that!
