Smoked sausage and vegetable medley


Serves 2

1 Tbsp canola oil
1 red capsicum, deseeded and diced
1 courgette, sliced into rings
225g reduced fat smoked pork sausage, sliced into rings
300g new or boiling potatoes, sliced into chunks, cooked as below
1 Tbsp sundried tomato pesto
1 Tbsp chopped parsley


Heat oil in a large heavy-based frying pan and add capsicum, courgette and sausage and stir fry for 5 minutes.
Add potatoes and pesto and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Place on plates and serve immediately, garnished with parsley.

Suggestion: This dish can work just a easily as a main. Simply double or treble the quantities.

To boil potatoes:
Place potatoes in a saucepan and add sufficient cold water to just cover.
Place a lid on the saucepan and bring to the boil as quickly as possible, reduce heat and simmer gently.
Cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender when tested with a skewer or the tip of a knife.
Add extra boiling water if necessary. Drain.

Note: Always simmer vegetables as vigorous boiling will cause some vegetables to break up.
