ITALIAN SAUSAGE ZUCCHINI NOODLE SKILLET
2 tablespoons coconut oil (or olive oil)
1 medium yellow onion, thin sliced
1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced in half
4 fully cooked Italian sausage links, sliced
4 medium zucchini, (or 3 large)
2 ounces fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded
salt and pepper (to taste)
Warm a large skillet over medium high heat. Once you can feel the heat from 6" above the pan, add oil.
Meanwhile: cut onion in half and peel the outer layer. Slice onion into thin strips. Toss onion slices in in pan when it's ready. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (about 1/4 teaspoon of each).
Meanwhile: Rinse tomatoes and slice in half. Cut sausage into slices.
Once the onions are beginning to look translucent, add tomatoes and sausage. Add salt and pepper (about 1/4 teaspoon each). Your tomatoes will begin to release liquid and it will collect in the pan, once you see the tomato juice, you are ready to add zucchini.
Meanwhile: wash zucchini and make zucchini noodles.
Add zucchini noodles to skillet. Add salt (about 1/2 teaspoon). Use tongs to toss and coat zucchini. Cook until desired texture is reached. I like mine like al dente pasta, about 3 minutes.
Taste. Season with salt and pepper as necessary.
Shred Parmesan cheese over skillet. Serve and enjoy! - SERVES 4
