I am making this tonight for the second time. My whole family enjoyed this and wanted more! Very simple to put together and then forget about while it cooks. A keeper for sure!

This is really good, simple, and fast! Being a step-by-step recipe person, particularly for new recipes, I stumbled a little on what to bake the sausage in; I chose an 11x9 baking pan; to minimize pans, I did the sauteing in a 12" fry pan and transferred all to the 11x9 for the "final baking process". The next time, in order to use my Dutch oven with the lid, I guess I'll "set aside" the cooked/ready parts in one of my mixing bowls. Also, I broke up the whole tomatoes with my cooking spatula to make them a more consistent size with the peppers and sausage. Thanks, gailanng! This is going into my busy weekday night rotation!
