Roasted Italian Sausage and Potatoes With Mushrooms and Peppers

"This is loosely adapted from Judith M. Fertig's recipe in Prairie Home Cooking. The original did not have any cheese or herbs. Either sweet or hot sausages will do; I've also made it with bratwurst. This is a very easy dinner, very nice for cold weather."

  1. This is a good hearty dish made from the most basic of ingredients, proving that quite often the simplest of dishes are the most enjoyable.<br/>I know it's not authentic, but I used some chicken Italian sausages from my local deli , which are very tasty...other than that I followed the instructions to the letter.<br/>The results were absolutely great...DH was raving about it from his first mouthful and hasn't stopped since (..and it's been a few days!!)...the potatoes were just crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle,the peppers and onions were wonderfully sweet, and the sausage and mushroom deliciously comforting.<br/>We totally loved this and will definitely be cooking this again..thanks for sharing.<br/>Made for PRMR.
  2. This was the perfect dish to make for a winter's day! I pretty much made it exactly as posted, with some minor changes (due to necessity). For some reason, I overlooked the garlic as an ingredient and didn't add it. Normally, I add garlic to everything, but I did not miss it hear. I could not find fresh savory, so I just 2 sprigs of fresh thyme. I used sweet Italian sausage, 1 red bell pepper and 1 green bell pepper. I only used 1 large yellow onion, but it was pretty big and was quite enough. I forgot to buy mushrooms so, as another reviewer suggested, I added celery. The end result was still delicious and satisfying, and I will be making this again (hopefully, correctly next time). Thanks for sharing this. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
  3. Wonderful!!!! So tasty! This is a new staple at my house. I used 1 teaspoon each of dried rosemary, thyme, and savory as I didn't have fresh. I also used fresh sausage and rolled it into balls. It made a LOT. I used a 9x13 dish plus a smaller casserole dish. I maybe could have fit it all in the 9x13, but I wouldn't have been able to stir it.
  4. Great quick and easy meal. Smelled delicious and tasted just as good.

  5. This recipe was easy and sooo good. I did use Bratwurst instead of Italian sausage and plenty of the herbs.


  1. I sliced the potatoes lengthwise and I used ground mustard in the mix of all the herbs and potatoes.
