Mediterranean One-Dish Meal

This was another one of the recipes that the Dutchess got out
of a magazine while waiting at a doctors office.
Sounded good, and Zach likes sausage, so we had a winner for dinner.
I started with sweet italian turkey sausage.


I browned it with some chopped onions. 


After the sausage was browned and the onions tender, I added some garlic
and garden dried oregano, and cooked for about 2 more minutes.


Recipe called only for spinach, but I also had swiss chard and arulega
in the garden, so I used all three.


I added diced tomatoes (low sodium, of course) with juice from can, kalamata olives, 
black olives and quinoa.  Brought this to a boil, then 
topped it with the greens (chopped) and cooked it until
all the liquid was gone.


after I plated, I added some feta cheese.


I was FULLY prepared for Zachary to not eat a bite of this.
To my surprise, he liked it.  He concentrated on the sausage, but ate a few
bites of the other bits of goodness too.
The Dutchess and I both liked this dish quite a bit.
It was a healthy and tasty meal, that was
filling and satisfying.  I was worried as I cooked, cause the tastings
were lacking a bit, but once everything was done, and the feta 
was added, the flavors came together quite well, and was
very mediterranean tasting.
