We do potluck from time to time at our church. This time they came up with an Italian theme…..what to make besides spaghetti and lasagna? Sausage and peppers……oh yeah. Very easy, not too much time and I made extra so we could have it for dinner as well. I will reduce to amounts so it feeds two to four…..so this picture is an illusion. Haha. You can omit the pasta if you are looking for a lower carb dinner, and or use vegetarian sausage or chicken for fewer calories. The amounts show 1-2 peppers of different colors, use any combination or all of one kind. The variety adds beautiful color to the meal.
- 1 package Italian sausage cut into hunks
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1-2 green pepper
- 1-2 yellow pepper
- 1-2 orange pepper
- 1/2 large onion
- 1 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 4 Roma tomatoes
- Grated parmigiana cheese for top
You can add pasta and some canned tomatoes if making for a crowd or you need more food for the family.
Cut the sausage up in good size hunks, fry until brown. In the meantime cut peppers and onion into hunks… a little larger than bite size. Set aside. Remove meat and pour off grease when done. Using the same pan with the crunchy stuff still in it….Add olive oil, back to pan, place vegetables in except tomatoes, stir in seasoning and salt. Cook to your desired doneness. Add tomatoes and sausage back. Put a lid on it and cook about ten minutes. That’s it!
If you cook pasta you can dish the mixture onto the pasta, sprinkle with cheese and serve.
As always we hope you enjoy.
