Vegetables, which vary widely in their protein content, are valuable for bringing fiber to protein centered meals. Turkey sausage is combined with sweet, vitamin C-rich Cubanelle peppers.


  • 5 medium Cubanelle peppers (also called Italian frying peppers), seeded and cut into 1-inch-thick strips

  • 2 large red onions, each cut into 6 wedges

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 pound hot turkey sausages, cut on the diagonal into 2-inch pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Gently toss peppers, onions, garlic, oregano, oil, and sausages in a large bowl. Transfer to an 11-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet. Bake, gently tossing about halfway through, until sausages are cooked through and vegetables are tender, 50 to 55 minutes.
