I had some hot Italian sausage and wanted something satisfying but easy & fast - I saw my Mushrooms & Peppers played with it and came up wi th this recipe. Bratwurst will work if you don't want it too spicy or any other of your favorite sausages. Add or take away some of the heat - A recipe is only a starting point to satisfy your taste buds. I simmer the sausages in water or beer first to remove any fat - it is not essential to do this. Hope you enjoy it.
