  • Sausage Options: Feel free to use your favorite type of sausage. Italian sausage, chicken sausage, or even spicy chorizo can add different flavors to the dish.
  • Vegetable Variations: While broccoli and bell peppers are used in this recipe, you can add other vegetables such as zucchini, cherry tomatoes, or onions to customize the dish to your liking.
  • Seasoning Tips: Don't be afraid to experiment with seasonings. Adding a pinch of red pepper flakes can give the dish a spicy kick, or try adding a squeeze of lemon juice at the end for a fresh, tangy flavor.
  • Cooking Tip: Make sure to cook the sausage thoroughly before adding the vegetables to ensure everything cooks evenly and the flavors meld together perfectly.
  • Serving Suggestions: This dish also pairs well with a side of quinoa, or a simple green salad. For a low-carb option, serve it over cauliflower rice.
  • Storage and Reheating: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet over medium heat until warmed through or microwave in a microwave-safe container.
  • Make it a Meal: For a more substantial meal, you can add cooked pasta or potatoes to the skillet during the last few minutes of cooking.
  • Dairy-Free Option: Omit any cheese if adding for a dairy-free version, or use a dairy-free cheese substitute.
