Healthycooking's picture
  Green onions 5
  Spinach 8 Ounce, stems removed, leaves rinsed and crisped (230 Gram)
  Bell pepper 8 Ounce, seeded and cut lengthwise into thin strips (Yellow Or Red)
  Pears 5 Medium
  Olive oil/Vegetable oil 1 Teaspoon
  Turkey italian sausage 10 Ounce, casings removed (Mild Or Hot)
  Balsamic vinegar 80 Milliliter (1/3 Cup)
  Fennel seeds 3⁄4 Teaspoon

1. Trim and discard ends of onions. Cut onions into 2-inch (5-cm) lengths; then cut each piece lengthwise into slivers. Tear spinach into bite-size pieces. Place onions, spinach, and bell pepper in a large serving bowl, cover, and set aside.
2. Peel and core pears; slice thinly. Heat oil in a wide nonstick frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add pears and stir-fry until almost tender to bite (about 5 minutes). Lift pears from pan with a slotted spoon; transfer to a bowl and keep warm.
3. Crumble sausage into pan and stir-fry over medium-high heat until browned (5 to 7 minutes); add water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time, if pan appears dry. Add pears, vinegar, and fennel seeds to pan. Stir gently to mix, scraping browned bits free from pan bottom. Immediately pour hot
