  • 1 Tbsp olive oil $0.12
  • 1/2 lb. smoked sausage $2.50
  • 2 bell peppers $2.00
  • 1 yellow onion $0.31
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes* $1.09
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano $0.05
  • Freshly cracked pepper (10-15 cranks of a mill) $0.03
  • 2 cups cooked farro $1.00
  • 1/4 bunch fresh parsley, chopped (optional) $0.20


  • Thinly slice the onions and bell peppers. Slice the smoked sausage into 1/4 inch thick medallions.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced sausage and sauté until browned. Drain off the excess fat.
  • Add the sliced onions and bell peppers to the skillet. Continue to sauté until the onions are soft and transparent.
  • Add the diced tomatoes (with juices), oregano, some freshly cracked pepper, and the cooked farro. Stir until evenly combined and allow to heat through (5-7 minutes). Taste and adjust the salt if needed. Serve topped with chopped parsley.


*I used diced tomatoes that were flavored with onion, bell pepper, and celery. Plain diced tomatoes will also work, as will fire roasted diced tomatoes.
