I’m all about one-pot cooking because it’s simple and easy with minimal clean-up. Agree?

Originally I intended to make chili, and then this recipe took on a complete mind of its own.

Sometimes I do that and the results are often great (and once in a while, completely awful). What I ended up with was neither a stew nor a soup nor was it chili…it doesn’t have the right ingredients to call it that.

The best approximation I’ve got is that it’s a very, very hearty meat sauce that’s chock full of veggies. No matter. If you’re looking for one-pot cooking, well, your wish is my command.

Italian Sausage Ragout is the ultimate weeknight quick and easy one-pan meal because it's simple and tasty with minimal clean-up.



  • 2 Italian sausages read labels carefully, if no clean options available, sub lean ground pork
  • 1 lb lean ground chicken or turkey breast
  • 2 small zucchini sliced into quarters
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • 15 oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup prepared pasta sauce again, read labels
  • 1/2 cup sliced green or black olives
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and diced (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp Penzey’s Italian Sausage Seasoning sub: 1/2 tsp black pepper, 2 tsp ground fennel, 1/2 tsp salt
  • Coconut oil or fat of choice


  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, sauté the turkey breast and Italian sausage which has been removed from the casing until cooked through. Drain any excess fat and move the meat to a separate bowl for the time being.
  2. Prepare the veggies: quarter and slice the zucchini, slice the onion and dice the tomato. Slice the olives and peel / dice the sweet potato.
  3. In the same pot over medium-high heat, add a spoonful of your fat of choice. Add the onion and zucchini and sauté until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients – tomato, fire-roasted diced tomatoes, pasta sauce, olives, sweet potato and spices.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, partially covered for about 15 minutes or until the sweet potato is tender.
  6. Tasty over roasted spaghetti squash or just on its own!
