This is one of my favorites from Simply in Season, and last year when my aunt had an abundance of asparagus I gave her this recipe. Her young boys LOVED it!
FOR PRINTABLE VERSION CLICK HERE: Sausage Asparagus Skillet
1 lb bulk sausage (I substituted ground turkey since I had some I needed to use up. I added herbes de provence to season)
1 medium onion (chopped)
4 medium potatoes (chopped)
1/2 cup water
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 lb asparagus (cut in 1 inch lengths)
1/2 cup cheese (shredded)
1. Fry the sausage and onion together until lightly browned and drain fat.
2. Add the potatoes and water, and cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Add the asparagus and simmer an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
4. Sprinkle cheese on top. (I used Edam from Grassfields . . . YUM!)
The verdict: This was super delicious. I actually like the turkey version better than with the sausage. It was a milder flavor and went well with the Edam.
