Sausages & Bell Peppers

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CountryLady

I've been making this dish for years & finally got around to posting! I prefer Tomato Basil Sausages from our local butcher but I've also used Italian (hot or sweet) and Octoberfest sausages. Just don't use those skinny little breakfast links. The "sauce" is delicious with plain steamed rice!

Quick, tasty and easy. I used red bell peppers and green peppers that are known as "Italian" peppers around here. I also used local sausage, longaniza, and was too lazy to go and buy tomatoes so I used a bit more tomato sauce! I also cooked the sauce for quite a long time, as I don't like my cooked peppers in any way hard. The sauce would be lovely, as CountryLady said, by itself, or even with veggie sausages.
