Sausage and Peppers

Sausage and Peppers over rice
       What Italian household has never had Sausage and Peppers? A standard meal on any Italian's menu. A quick and delicious way to use a few simple ingredients. Either over pasta, rice, or even on hoagie buns as a sandwich. I am sure everyone who has gone to any Italian restaurant or festival has found a traditional Sausage and Pepper meal. In my household growing up we ate them 3 different ways. As mentioned we had ours either over pasta, in hoagie buns, or over rice. I prefer if not having it as a sandwich over rice. The great combination of spicy sausage and the peppers with a great tomato base just fill your mouth with goodness. Sprinkle a little mozzarella cheese and you're good to go. You can use any color of bell peppers you want. I prefer red and green. Below I describe a very quick way to make this delicious meal. Serves 2-3.

Sausage and Peppers


  • 3 Italian sausage links
  • 1/2 15oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbs ricotta
  • Shredded mozzarella
  • Rice
  • Olive oil
  • Salt/pepper

        Cut the sausage links into bite size chunks. (If making hoagies leave them whole). Sauté in a skillet over medium high heat in a little bit of olive oil until nice and brown. Chop up the green pepper, red pepper, onion, and garlic. Toss into the pan and sauté. Pour in the tomato sauce. Lower heat, cover and simmer. Meanwhile make a side of rice according to cooking instructions. About five minutes before serving I like to add 1 tabs of ricotta to the sausage mixture for some extra creaminess. Serve over rice and top with some shredded mozzarella. Quick and easy Sausage and Peppers.
