Paleo Italian Skillet Dinner

paleo skillet dinnerSkillet dinners and one dish meals are always a favorite at my house. They are fast, easy and full of flavor and cleanup is a breeze. another benefit is that these types of dishes usually taste even better the next day so they make great make-ahead meals and leftovers make a tasty lunch.

This Italian skillet dinner is one of my favorites and is great with Paleo bread sticks or cheese crisps.

Paleo Italian Skillet Dinner Recipe


1/2 lb ground pork

1/2 lb sausage meat (if you can’t buy the meat then just squeeze the meat out of links)

2 tsp fennel seeds

1-2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (I like it spicy so I use 2-3 tsp)

1 tsp oregano

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp rosemary

1 small onion, diced

2-3 cups veggies (broccoli, carrots, zucchini, celery, spinach all work well)

1 c diced tomatoes (canned) or 1 c cherry tomatoes

Pepper to taste (salt not needed because the sausage is salty enough)


In a heavy skillet, combine the meat, garlic, onion and spices and cook until well browned. Add the veggies and reduce heat to simmer and cover. If you used cherry tomatoes you may need to add 1/2 cup liquid to get the stewing process going. Cook 10-15 minutes until veggies are tender and flavors well combined.

Serve it up and enjoy!
