Prep Time 5 mins

Total Time 15 mins
Servings 2 people


  • olive oil
  • 1 Medium Zucchini
  • 1 Medium Squash
  • 1 Tbsp Yellow Onion
  • 1 Link Chicken Sausage (any flavor)
  • Feta Cheese

Other optional ingredients

  • mushrooms
  • bell pepper
  • jalapeno pepper
  • eggs


  • Chop zucchini, squash, chicken sausage, and other veggies except the onion.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan until shimmering, then use a cheese grater to grate the onion directly into the pan. This is my secret weapon to get the onion flavor without big chunks! Saute the onion until it begins to brown.
  • Add the rest of the veggies and saute until browned and soft.
  • Add the chicken sausage to the pan and heat through.
  • Remove from the pan, and top with feta cheese.

Reheating instructions:

  • Refrigerate extra food in an airtight container. When ready to eat, microwave for 1 minute on high, and top with fresh feta cheese.
