Sausage, Peppers and Onions
The three magic words to food bliss!! This recipe starts out by slicing up your peppers, onions and giving the garlic a nice mincing. The first thing to go in the pot will be your Italian sausage (casing removed). For this recipe I used a mild Italian sausage, but you can spice it up however you like. You can even go with a chicken or turkey sausage if you are keeping it lite.
