Sausage Potato Skillet
DURING my childhood, I lived in an Italian neighborhood in New Jersey. Since both my parents were working, I went home for lunch with my Italian girlfriend.
Lunch was always the same - sausage, fried potatoes, green peppers and onions - but I could never get enough of my favorite meal.
