Fussy family loves it, Member milytaylor

My family does not like low-fat recipes. Turkey sausage? They want nothing to do with it. I decided to make this anyway. It was devoured. When I told them afterwards it was low-fat with turkey sausage, they couldn't believe it. It's easy and it's good. For even more low-fatiness, I didn't use canola oil. After setting aside the sausage, I cooked the veggies in the same pan. The pan was already ""greased"" from cooking the sausage, so I left out the oil.
