Italian Sausage & Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Melanie M

Great, simple recipe I received in the mail from my friend Nicole. She said her Mom used to cook this when she was married to an Italian man. A good idea is to mash the potatoes a little and add some butter, and serve with Italian bread.

When I prepare this dish I leave the sausages whole and add green and red pepper chunks, cut the onion into chunks and add garlic. I do not add the water. Instead I lightly sprinkle olive oil, salt and pepper over everything, cover it and bake it for 1 hour, uncover and bake till brown. This is the version given to me by an Italian patient of an office I worked in years ago. Hope this helps you out, Rosemary.
