What I Made: Sausage and Noodle Skillet with Banana Peppers

Although this recipe is a one pot meal, it does require a bit of preparation because of all the ingredients that need to be chopped.  The upside is that this recipe is widely customizable.  Got some vegetables you need to get rid of?  Toss them in!  Just don’t make the mistake that I did a try to use pre-cooked noodles.  This makes a soggy mess. Instead, cook them as part of the recipe. Click “Read More” to see full directions.
