Sausages & Bell Peppers

Sausages & Bell Peppers created 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!

    Sorry, I thought this was quite bland. I felt the it needed a lot more black pepper perhaps, or maybe you need to use the hot sausages to give it the extra flavour. I used really nice toulouse sausages, though, which I thought would be good with this, but was disappointed.

    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.

    Very good over noodles! I cut the sausages into chunks and only used one big onion. Great weekday meal- next time I might add some oregano or basil though. Thanks for sharing!

    I had some leftover grilled Sausages that I had in the freezer. I went on the Zaar to find what I could make with them and this sounded good. WOW! It was incredable. I cut up the sausage into 1" bits & served the whole dish over rice. The only thing I would do different next time is use a Hot/Spicy Sausage to give it a bit of a kick. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Delicious! The only changes I made were to use extra garlic and to add some wine to the pan shortly after adding in the tomatoes. I added the tomato sauce and put the sausages back in once the wine was almost completely evaporated. We had this with basmati rice. SO GOOD!
