  • 1 onion any variety, chopped
  • 2-3 peppers any variety (bell, Anaheim, Mexibell, poblano), chopped
  • 1-2 hot chili peppers minced (jalapeños, Thai peppers, cayenne)
  • 2-3 cups of chopped tomatoes
  • 1-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1-2 small or medium zucchini sliced into thin rounds
  • 3-4 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream or 4oz cream cheese
  • 4 sausages or Bratwurst any variety (chicken, turkey, pork, beef)
  • 1/2 -1 cup of shredded cheese any variety (mozzarella is my fav)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs optional (I usually throw a handful of basil on top)
  1. Chop all veggies.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once butter has melted, add in onions and peppers. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until soft, then add in tomatoes and garlic. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. While the vegetables are simmering, brown or cook sausages in a skillet over medium heat. Once the sausage has browned or cooked, remove from heat and cut into large rounds.
  4. Meanwhile, add sour cream or cream cheese to vegetables and stir to combine. If using cream cheese, stir until it's melted and tomato sauce is creamy.
  5. Next, add in the zucchini and cook for about 5 minutes, until just starting to get soft.
  6. Add the sausage/brats to the skillet with the vegetables and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  7. Finally top with shredded cheese and any fresh herbs.
  8. Enjoy!
