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. -Amelia Bordas, Springfield, Virginia

I found this recipe about 10 years ago. And I've been making it regularly ever since. The only difference is that I Quadruple the batch...and never have any left overs!!!
