Vegan Italian Sausage And Peppers

I decided to make this Vegan Italian sausage and peppers for dinner, served over pasta, my hubby really enjoyed it. I wanted to make a dish that was quick and easy to prepare after a long day working as the nurse for summer camp.

 Daevyd is having lots of fun attending and today I got to sit in his photography class where he learned to take lifestyle photos and edit with an iPhone. After his class, his photography teacher did a photo shoot with me in the kitchen. 

I’m planning to keep up with posting new recipes for the rest of the month but if some days I don’t get to post new recipes its probably because I’m very busy here at the camp or exhausted but  I’ll definitely make up for it next month.
