Artichokes, Zucchini, Peppers and Polish Sausage Mess

I don’t know what the technical term is, but when I mix random vegetables from the garden with some meat, cook it down until the veggies are soft and make a sort of broth, I call it “vegetable mess”. My normal vegetable mess includes cumin, tomatoes and sausage, so to distinguish that recipe from this one, I’ll spell out the name on this one.

Artichokes, Zucchini, Peppers and Polish Sausage Mess

Oil – I used lard. I’ve used olive oil in the past.
Salt and pepper to taste
Seasonings – I used Jack’s Gourmet Seasoning. Basil works as well.
1/2 Cabbage, diced
1 onion, diced
1 tbsp garlic
Red pepper flakes to taste
1 medium zucchini, chopped
2 red or green peppers, chopped
1 jalapeño, minced
Artichoke hearts, I used bottled, just drain them
Polish Sausage

1. In a large pan, heat about 1 T of oil. Add in cabbage and onion, and cook until tender. Next, add in garlic and a dash of red pepper flakes. Cook for 2 minutes.
