Italian Sausage and Peppers

I’m sharing #SausageFamily in my life as part of a Johnsonville sponsored series for Socialstars™

Italian Sausage and Peppers

 

This simple and delicious Italian Sausage and Peppers recipe is a breeze to whip up for a family meal. It’s a classic meal that never gets old. Serve it over rice or pasta or stuff it into hoagie rolls for a filling dinner the whole family will enjoy.

Flavorful chunks of Italian sausage are combined with diced tomatoes, garlic, oregano, basil, lots of red and green bell pepper and onion. It’s a comforting meal but light enough to be enjoyed on a warm summer day.

For this Italian Sausage and Peppers recipe I used Johnsonville Natural Italian Sausage. Johnsonville Naturals is a new product line that not only includes Italian Sausage, but 3 flavors of bratwurst too: White Cheddar, Jalapeno Cheddar, and Andouille.

  1. Made this tonight (probably not the best time to cook during a heat wave! LOL!) Got thumbs up! I made modifications because my grocery order wasn’t correct. I used Italian herbed stewed tomatoes, I added sugar free ketchup instead of tomato paste. I diced red, yellow and orange peppers. Used Italian seasoning and skipped the red chili flakes. Simmered while the pasta was cooking. I do not eat pasta and my son’s girlfriend is gluten free so we had ours on Nupasta. Will definitely make again!

  2. I just made this for the first time. It was yummy! We are going to eat the leftovers over pasta. 😊

    Omg, I just made this. My husband went crazy, he said it was the best sausage hoagie he ever ate. I ate mine on rice, I give this ten thumbs up👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  4. Tasted great. Red pepper flakes gave it a nice kick. I used pork Brats and they were great. Everybody claimed to love it and it was consumed entirely so I’d say it was a hit!
