If you are in the market for an easy and flavorful dinner then this dish is for you. This polish sausage recipe has become one of our go-to dinners during the school week because it can be made in less than 30 minutes with few ingredients.  

Sausage and peppers is dish that can be served in many ways. Try serving over rice, cauliflower rice, pasta, spaghetti squash or even on toast. Use turkey kielbasa and zoodles or cauliflower rice for a lower calorie option.

Polish sausage – Polish sausage is also known as kielbasa. It’s typically made with pork but can also be made with beef and even turkey.

Recipe tips

  • Give the vegetables time to soften. It will probably take around 5-7 minutes. 
  • Feel free to change up the flavor profile and substitute Italian seasoning with fajita seasoning and Rotel tomatoes with chiles.
  • Try adding your favorite pasta sauce and serve this over pasta. 
  • Best served immediately or store for meal prep.  

How to store

Let the leftovers completely cool and then store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. This is great for meal prep for the week and can be reheated in the skillet or in the microwave.

    Incredible!! I used plant based sausage since I have high blood pressure and cholesterol issues. I used no salt diced tomatoes with chilies and no salt stewed tomatoes and wow what flavor this dish has!! Thank you for an amazing recipe.

  2. Horrible horrible music existed on this pin so I almost didn’t click as i mostly refuse to get past the horrible music since i sometimes to forget to turn my sound off when others are watching tv, but we love kielbasa as a quick meal. Hope breaking my hard rule about not trying a recipe with music is worth it-lol fingers are crossed 🙂

    This is a busy weekday go-to meal in our household. It cooks quickly but has a lot of flavor. It’s also healthy with all the vegetables!

    Delicious! Not usually a fan of Kielbasa, just happened to have some in the freezer. I didn’t have canned tomatoes so I cut up 5 Roma tomatoes and added them to the skillet after I’d sautee’d the other veggies. Also didn’t have mushrooms but will definitely add them next time. Served with black beans & rice. Thank you for a great recipe!

  5. What a great recipe to impress the family this weekend, they are always happy when I give them something delicious to eat
