We, working moms know the dilemma of what to pack for lunch. Gone are the days when kids were happy and satiated with PB&J or cold cut sandwiches. They want something new, something exciting, something worth sharing with their friends at the lunch room table. My son is no longer in high school. still, I felt this urge when he was home for summer and working. Every single day of the week, he would call me after the lunch hour, telling me how his lunch was. Most of the times, I got an A+! This was one of those A+ lunches I made for him that he still remembers and requests to make it for him.
Here’s how I made it.
Sausage and Peppers Stir Fry
1 medium green pepper(you can add more colored peppers if you want)
2 Hot Italian Turkey sausage, casing removed and cut into chunks(for vegetarians, use Soy chunks)
1 medium potato, parboiled and cut into cubes
2 small zucchinis, sliced
2 tbsp oil
2-4 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp red pepper flakes
In a hot skillet on medium high heat, heat up the oil.
Add garlic, seasoning, red pepper flakes and saute for about 2 minutes.
Now add all the other ingredients with salt and stir fry on high heat.
Once the veggies are caramalized, remove from heat and serve with hot steamed rice or pasta.
This stir fry is good to eat on it’s own or make a wrap!
