Sausage Pepper Skillet Recipe

"We try to eat healthy, but that can be difficult with our busy schedules," writes Margaret Kruse from Virginia Beach, Virginia. "To save time, I freeze chopped onions and peppers to use in entrees like this one. And to cut back on calories and fat. I saute foods in fat-free Italian salad dressing."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 large green pepper, julienned
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup sliced red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 1 pound reduced-fat turkey kielbasa, sliced
