Dinner time: Sweet Potato Italian Bake

There’s a few things I cannot live without in this world, and Italian food is at the top of this list. ((Right next to peanut butter cups)). However, I don’t enjoy all the carbs and useless calories in noodles. It’s great to splurge, but not every night.

I was craving pasta horribly, but after eating junk all weekend I couldn’t justify another bad meal. As usual I stared at what we had and just went for it. I made an Italian Sausage Sweet Potato Bake in the skillet. It turned out phenomenal and it will now be added to our rotation. Loaded with veggies and meaningful carbs.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 2 peppers
  • Italian Turkey Sausage
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Proves cheese (optional)
  • Directions:
  • Peel and cube sweet potatoes into bite size pieces. Cut onion and peppers into slivers. Mine were about 1 inch long and 1/4″ wide.
  • Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat.
  • Place turkey sausage in skillet with 1/4 cup water. Bring to boil and cook until finished.
  • Add sweet potatoes to skillet with olive oil. Cover with lid and allow to cook.
  • When sweet potatoes begin to soften, add peppers and onion.
  • Season potatoes, peppers and onion with garlic and paprika. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • When sausage is finished cooking, cut into slices. Add sausage to potato mixture.
  • Stir everything together. Add marinara to liking. Stir again.
  • *optional* top with cheese and allow to melt.
  • Serve and enjoy!
