  • 400g Italian sausage (lean, with at least 20g protein per 100g)

  • 2 large bell peppers (any color you prefer), thinly sliced

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (a mix of dried oregano, basil, thyme, and rosemary)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh parsley or basil for garnish (optional)


  1. Slice the Italian sausage into thin rounds.

  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

  3. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until it becomes fragrant.

  4. Add the sliced Italian sausage to the skillet and cook until it's browned and cooked through. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set it aside.

  5. In the same skillet, add the thinly sliced onions and bell peppers. Cook them over medium heat until they become tender-crisp, stirring frequently. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

  6. Once the vegetables are cooked to your liking, add the cooked sausage back to the skillet.

  7. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper over the mixture and stir everything together. Adjust the seasonings to suit your taste.

  8. Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

  9. If desired, garnish with fresh parsley or basil before serving.
