Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 21 to 26 minutes Serves: 4 to 5

If you have a craving for potatoes, here’s one way to cook them fast. Team them up with sausage slices (use the light varieties for less fat) and red and green pepper strips for an appealing entrée.

1½ pounds fully cooked Polish kielbasa sausage

2 medium onions, quartered and sliced

5 medium baking potatoes, peeled and diced

1/3 cup water

½ teaspoon salt

1 red bell pepper, cut into thin 1-inch-long strips

1 green bell pepper, cut into thin 1-inch long strips

¼ teaspoon pepper

1.Cut sausage into ½-inch diagonal slices.

2. In a 10- to 12-inch skillet, cook sausage and onions over medium-high heat, stirring often, until onions are golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain off any excess fat that accumulates.

3. Stir in potatoes, water, and salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 10 minutes.

4. Stir in red and green peppers. Cook, covered, over medium heat, 5 to 8 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Season with pepper.
