You may have noticed I have been posting a lot of Paleo stuff lately. So to answer the many questions, No, I am not eating Paleo, and my blog will not just be Paleo. However, there are some great Paleo friendly dishes out there, and my sister/extended family eat a lot of Paleo, so I figured it was time to create some Paleo friendly recipes. This one was one of my faves. Yummy!
This was the absolute perfect meal for me this week. I wanted something packed with veggies, but totally decadent too. The sausage took this to decadent, the zucchini, peppers, and onions made me feel like I was getting a great boost of anti-oxidant rich, skinny-making veggie goodness. Yummers! I totally made this as a lettuce wrap filling, but truthfully, I had a bunch of chopped romaine all ready to go, and couldn’t stop snitching this, so I just dumped it on top of my romaine and ate it like a chopped salad. Mmm.
And as always, this was eazy peazy to throw together. In fact, it was kind of an accident. I was having a party with
a billion eleven five year olds, and realized I hadn’t eaten or fed my hubby and guest, so I grabbed the first thing I found (spicy sausage), and started pulling veggies out of the crisper, and this is what I ended up with. I liked it so much I made it again the next day.
