Another yummy find at Trader Joe's

Last night I made a Chicken Sausage Stir Fry with Trader Joe's Mushroom Asiago Chicken Sausage. I usually steer away from sausages because you don't usually get much nutritional bang for your buck but these are great. Each link has 18 g. of Protein, 170 Calories, 9 g. Fat, 2 g. Carbs, 0 g. Sugars. No MSG, no nitrates or nitrites, and they are antibiotic and hormone free. The ingredient list is all items I can recognize and easily pronounce which is rare in a sausage product. More importantly, they taste great.

Shelly's Chicken Sausage Stir Fry

1 Yellow Onion, Sliced
3-4 Large Mushrooms, Sliced
2 Cups Zucchini and/or Summer Squash, Sliced
2 links Mushroom Asiago Chicken Sausage, Grilled and Sliced
Olive Oil

Grill the sausages about 3 minutes a side on the BBQ or indoor grill to get a little color. Slice and set aside.

Brown Onion in a little olive oil. Add Mushrooms and Zucchini/Squash. Cook till squash in tender and golden. Add Sausage slices and cook till warmed through. The Sausage is fully cooked.

Serve with a side salad and for non-ops ;) a nice glass of Pinot Grigio. It's a quick and easy summer supper.
