Sautéed Vegetables Italian Style

Sautéed Vegetables Italian Style is the perfect side dish for your favorite seasonal vegetables. I love serving this with a grilled steak or seafood. Sometimes I turn it into a main course using all of my left over fresh vegetables at the end of the week! Be creative…

  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
