  • In nonstick large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add red peppers and onions and cook until tender and lightly browned, 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Set vegetables aside to cool slightly.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In large bowl, mix sausage meat, ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, parmesan, tomato sauce, salt and cooked vegetables just until well combined, but not over mixed.
