Growing up I feel like my parents made this dish often. Although I wasn't drawn to this in high school, lately I feel like my taste buds have changed and I enjoy all the vegetables. I see why it was a winter go-to dish for a busy weeknight with a large family. It filled the house with the smell of something mouth watering and surrounded the downstairs in warmth. It's also incredibly easy to throw everything together and cook in a pinch. It reminds me of the coveted one pan meals that are so popular now but without having to sacrifice any flavor.
I made a modified version of Ina Garten's Modern Comfort Food recipe. I switched out the regular butcher sausage for Aidells chicken sausage and also used a regular green bell pepper in place of a poblano pepper. I hope you make a version that suits your family's preferences too!
