Hi all! Tonight’s dinner was a super fast, easy and low Weight Watchers Smartpoints Summer Squash and Sausage Skillet. I love the combination of sausage, peppers and onions. This time, I added some freshly picked summer squash and smoky, fire roasted tomatoes with a little fresh basil to brighten the dish for a quick summer meal. I love serving this over rice or with a delicious sourdough baguette on the side for dipping. Enjoy!
