- spinach-feta chicken sausage
- whole wheat pitas
- 1 bag(s)
- fresh spinach
- roasted red pepper (approx just over 1/2 cup chopped)
- 1 clove
- salt & pepper to taste
1Chop up 1 roasted red pepper, or just over 1/2 cup of roasted red peppers. Dice garlic fine. Slice the chicken sausages into 1/2 inch or less slices.
2In a pan on medium heat cook the garlic, peppers, chicken and spinach until the spinach is just starting to wilt. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3Cut open a pocket in the top of each pita and carefully stuff the mixture into each pita.
4Note: The sausage I used was fully cooked, check the package to make sure it is fully cooked before adding the vegetables.
I felt the recipe didn't need additional seasoning in the form of a sauce or dressing, but feel to add some to taste.
Optional add-ins (not calculated into nutritional value) include a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese, 1/2 cup mushrooms cooked with the sausage, or some diced tomato/sun dried tomato.
