Italian Style Stir Fry

If you didn’t already notice, some of my blogging buddies are having babies. Quite a few actually. It’s awesome and I absolutely love when I hear of another preggo joining the bunch, especially the first time moms!

Today we are celebrating my friend Katie and her soon-to-be baby boy! I’ve know Katie a few years now, she lives in the Central Florida area like me so I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with her a few times. Katie is as sweet as they come (extremely talented too!) and I can’t wait to meet her little guy soon. (PS…I’m not kidding when I say she’s talented, just check out her beautiful food blog Katie’s Cucina and her and her husband’s DIY blog Sew Woodsy – awesome stuff!)

Since becoming a new mom can sometimes mean a little less time and less energy to get dinner on the table every night, I am sharing an easy dinner recipe that I find myself throwing together for my family quite often. It’s one that everyone in the family enjoys so of course that’s a winner in my book.

I always keep precooked chicken sausages for quick throw together recipes just like this one. I picked these up – along with a couple other varieties – at Costco and I can’t tell you how often they have saved the day at dinnertime. Serve this Italian inspired “stir fry” over brown rice or orzo for a healthy easy weeknight meal.

Best wishes to Katie and her husband on their upcoming bundle!

Italian Style Stir Fry

Italian inspired stir fry using simple ingredients. Great for a weeknight meal, your whole family will love it!

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 large bell pepper (or 6 mini sweet peppers), sliced thin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken sausage pieces and brown on both sides for about 5-6 minutes. Take chicken sausage out of pan and set aside on a plate.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in same skillet. Raise heat to medium high. Add minced garlic, broccoli and peppers to pan and saute for 3-4 minutes. Season with oregano, salt and pepper. Add chicken sausage back in pan and gently toss, cooking together for another few minutes until vegetables are bright and slightly crisp.
  3. Serve over brown rice or whole wheat orzo drizzled in olive oil, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.

Notes

Optional: Add a cup of fresh cut green beans, sliced onion and/or a diced tomato with the broccoli and peppers.

I always have pre-cooked sausage on hand too. But I’ve never thought to put it in a stir-fry! Reminds me of when I saw Katie using them in kebobs. You ladies are so so smart. And yes, talented too! Thanks for joining in to celebrate Katie and her baby bump today!

Oh Aggie, I’m so glad we’ve become friends in real life. I can’t wait for our boys to meet and eventually play together! What an awesome idea for dinner. Love the idea of Italian Stir Fry! Next time I go to Costco I’ll definitely stock up on some chicken sausage so I can make this once our little guy is here.
