Caleb came over Saturday night and we spent the day geocaching and playing games. We went looking for six caches and were able to find four of them. This kid is so much fun. He loves God and cares about everyone’s feelings. At one cache he found a “diamond” and was so excited. He definitely had to swap something for it. Just look at how excited he is.
After a day of looking for treasures he helped me to make dinner. I love that he is old enough to help chop the vegetables. He never shies away from trying new recipes and is very honest about if he likes something or not. We both enjoyed this new recipe and I am sure that I will make it again.
Italian Turkey Sausage and Vegetables
- 1 pound Italian Turkey Sausage
- Olive oil
- 1 large zucchini, sliced
- 6 roma tomatoes, sliced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 bundle asparagus, chopped
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 12 ounce shredded mozzarella and provolone cheese, mixed blend
In a large non-stick skillet add olive oil and heat. Add sausage which has been removed from the casing and brown slightly while crumbling. While still slightly pink add onion and garlic and cook until onions are translucent. Add everything else except the cheese and stir well. Cook approximately 6-10 minutes until asparagus is cooked stirring often. Add cheese and stir until melted and blended. This will thicken the sauce. Serve warm.
