This is delicious! It's Weight Watcher friendly. Each serving is 5 points. This is a great way to use up your odds and ends in the fridge; in fact, that's how I came up with the recipe! The key is to use a light hand with the cooking spray, so as not to add points.

I was looking for a recipe that included sausage, and I stumbled upon this great recipe. I also began with 2 tablespoons of olive oil instead of cooking spray, but added cooking spray like the recipe called for. I added extra seasoning and it was super delicious! Thanks for posting!

I absolutely loved this dish as did my daughter. I followed the recipe in all ingredients but made a few minor additions. I began with 2 tsps of olive oil so that killed it being WW friendly but it was worth it for us. I did use cooking spray on the ingredients as I added them after the potatoes. I also added some salt, pepper and garlic powder. If I had thought about it I would have added minced garlic earlier but after I taste tested it during final cooking I realized it needed more flavor for our tastes and since we love garlic that was the way to go for us. I also covered it at the last to make the peppers a little less crunchy but that is simply our tastes. Thanks Amanda this recipe goes on my list for dishes cooked often and will be making it over and over.
