Looking for a super-simple weeknight meal that comes together in 30 minutes or less? You, my friend, are in the right place.

The husband and I have this dish in a fairly regular rotation, by nature of the fact that it’s both delicious AND incredibly easy to whip up.

What’s even better? The ingredients are the kind you can keep on hand for whenever the mood strikes you. The veggies are either canned or frozen, and the sausages themselves typically have a sell-by date that’s way out, since they’re vacuum sealed.

Wanna see step-by-step how I make it? Join me on The 21-Day Sugar Detox’s Instagram account this weekend. I’ll be sharing the process for cooking up this awesome, yummy dish over on Stories!

Another thing I love about this recipe, is how seamlessly it transitions to fit the diet, lifestyle, or challenge you’re following.

For instance:

If those options aren’t working for you, you could even serve over mixed greens, or all on its own!

Feeling wild and wanna sneak in MORE veggies? Try stirring in a cup or two of frozen chopped spinach at the same time you add the tomatoes. See? Even upping the nutrition of this dish is super-easy!

As always, thanks for joining me here on the blog, and don’t forget to connect with me on Instagram and Facebook, as well!
