Italian Sausage Skillet

Heather says:

I’m not the only one getting into this whole back to cooking basics idea. Over on the Home-Ec 101 Facebook Fanpage, Home Eccer Lindsey decided to play around with this week’s Simple Philly Skillet and used what she had on hand -smarty lady!- and shared the results. She shared the a whole album of step-by-step photos and I’ve selected just a couple for this post.

The photo and recipe credit goes to Lindsey Mccollum and I am so very glad she was willing to share with us.  Please say thank you, it’s a little bit intimidating to put yourself out there where anyone can be a critic.

Notes from Heather:
*American or provolone will work well as a substitute
**Lindsey had “Dried basil from my garden” since I doubt she wants us tromping through her yard this summer to stock  our own pantries, dried basil from any garden or the grocery store will do.

Enjoy!

Thank you, Lindsey!
