5-ingredient and super easy Whole30 dish!
Cook Time20 mins


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb Italian Sausage, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 bell peppers, seeded and sliced thin (I use one red and one green. But any are fine)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced thin
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup store bought marinara
  • 2 cups baby arugula, for serving


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the cut sausages to the skillet and brown on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer brown sausages to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the sliced bell peppers and onions to the skillet with some salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until tender, 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Pour in the marinara and stir to combine. Nestle the sausages into the sauce and let simmer to reheat the sausages, about 3 more minutes.
  • Serve over a bed of arugula, enjoy!

    I feel ridiculous for crushing on this dish as much as I am—because it’s SO easy and simple—but it really is so delicious and filling. It’s now easily one of my go-to’s for meals during the week. Thank you for this whole 5-ingredient series!
