When it comes to easy cooking, this recipe for an unstuffed green pepper skillet has it all. You and your family will love this recipe, and it's one of the healthy dinner ideas you can create on the fly. Great for those busy weekdays when you have so much going on. This recipe is just like those fancy stuffed peppers you may have tried at one point or another, but this is way easier since everything is just cooked up in one skillet instead of having to individually stuff each pepper. Judy from The Southern Lady Cooks added in some Italian Sausage and diced tomatoes which give the recipe some extra flavour. Instead of the pork sausages, you could also use turkey or chicken sausages. You could also use some ground beef, chicken or turkey instead of the sausages.

If you can get organic meat to use in your recipes all the better. Check with your local butcher or in the grocery store where they will usually have some organic, free range meats that have not been given hormones or antibiotics. The animals on free range organic farms are also treated better usually and fed better food. So if you do eat meat just make sure that it comes from an ethical source. If you are a vegan or a vegetarian you can substitute the meat for some veggie meat, or you can just leave the meat out altogether, and it would taste just as good. For the broth, you can use a vegetable broth instead of the beef broth, and you can even make your own veggie broth by simmering chopped up vegetables like carrots, celery, greens, onions, garlic and spices in a pot of water for several hours. You can also make your own beef, chicken, or turkey broth by boiling the bones of the animal in water and adding in some apple cider vinegar to pull out the natural minerals in the bones. The bone broth can also be eaten on its own as a soup or a drink for the powerful healing benefits.

For the recipe, you'll need the meat of your choice, chopped white onion, chopped green peppers, Italian Style diced tomatoes, broth, white rice that's been left uncooked, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt and black pepper. Literally, all you need to do for this recipe is add everything into a skillet on your stovetop and let it all simmer for 30 minutes or so. When it's all ready, just add cheese on the top and serve. If you don't eat cheese or dairy you could try some nondairy cheese on this recipe which tastes just as good as the real stuff it's usually made with almond flour, almond milk and lemon zest and lemon juice with some salt.
