Mediterranean One-Dish Meal Recipe

Mediterranean One-Dish Meal Recipe

I came up with this recipe one night when I was improvising with what I had on hand. I love to make simple, healthful, one-dish meals with lots of vegetables. Feta and Greek olives give this one a depth of flavor people seem to love. —Donna Jesser, Everett, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 3/4 pound Italian turkey sausage links, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 cup Greek olives
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • 1. In a large nonstick saucepan coated with cooking spray, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until sausage is browned and onion is tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the tomatoes, olives and oregano; bring to a boil.
  • 2. Stir in quinoa. Top with spinach. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat; fluff with a fork. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Look for quinoa in the cereal, rice or organic food aisle.

"Very good! I doubled the spinach because it didn't seem like enough, and it worked out well. Next time I'll cut the sausage a little thinner but I'll definitely make this again."

"Was delicious. I made it for two and we got a couple of meals out of it. I used black olives because I am not a huge fan of olives, but I can stand black olives mixed with other things. It was well-like and I am going to make it again."

"My husband called this one "keeper"! I didn't have sausage links but substituted 1/2 lb. turkey breakfast sausage which I cooked with the onion. I also substitiuted canned tomatoes with onion, garlic and oregano because that is what I had on hand. I think you could also substitute spanish olives for the greek with only a little change in the overall taste (though I would recommend the greek if you can splurge on the cost!). This is definitely an easy recipe I will be making again!"
