Sausage and Peppers

You will need:
-1 turkey sausage link (I like the Jenny-O brand)
-2 green bell peppers cut into thin strips (some times i use red, yellow and orange peppers instead)
-1 onion
**optional, 3 cups cooked noodles, 1 can cream of mushroom soup

1. Cut sausage into thin slices on the diagonal. Sautee in a pan with olive oil until browned well one both sides (about 10 minutes or so on medium high heat)
2.After sausages are cooked, remove from pan, and add onions and peppers.
3. Add salt and pepper, and cook onions and peppers until they are very softened and browned/blackened somewhat.
4. Add sausage back to pan, stir
----> If making it like the second option, now add cooked noodles and cream of mushroom soup and stir together

Grilled Vegetables with lemon-herb marinade

Here are the vegetables that I like to grill, but you can pick anything:

-1/4 cup white wine (I use riesling)
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1-2 tbspn chopped garlic
-The juice of 2 lemons
-One generous squeeze of the "Italian Herb Blend" Herbs that come in a tube

Marinate the vegetables for a few minutes or hours, and grill on a hot grill pan until blackened on both sides, then reduce heat and continue to cook until all soft. .
