Italian Sausage Veggie Skillet

We love Italian sausage sandwiches, but because the bread isn't diet-friendly for me, I created this recipe to satisfy my craving. If you like some heat, use hot peppers in place of the sweet peppers. —Tina Howells, Salem, Ohio

    This dish was delicious. I didn't have Turkey sausage only chicken sausage. But it came out tasting great. Will definitely be putting this dish into my dinner rotation.
