Italian sausage and vegetables all ready together in a crockpot ready to serve atop a pile of pasta or stuffed into hoagie rolls for sandwiches. A good meal for a big family or just what you need when you've got a hungry crowd over on game day or race day. Easy to halve for a smaller crowd.
- Prick sausage all over.
- Put sausage into large pot, cover with cold water, and simmer for 10 minutes to extract excess grease. This can be done the night before.
- In 6-quart oval crockpot layer half the sausage and half of each other ingredient. Repeat.
- Cook on high for 3 hours then on low for 3-4 hours.
- Serve over favorite pasta (I used bowties tonight), topped with parmesan. Its low-carb if you control the pasta quantities.
