I have a great recipe for you all – easy and fabulous!! I got the recipe from a friend of mine who got it from my babysitter. My babysitter is a great cook – I often have the privilege of smelling her food when I pick up the boys. Anyway, I tried this sausage and peppers recipe, and my family and I totally fell in love. In fact, it is on my menu for this weekend. Yippee!!
6 Italian sausages
2 tbsp. tomato paste
½ tsp. dried basil
½ tsp. dried oregano leaves
4-6 medium tomatoes diced (can substitute a large can of chopped tomatoes)
2 onions halved and sliced
1 small green pepper, cut into strips
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
Dash cayenne pepper
In a medium saucepan, brown sausages on all sides. Poke holes to drain. Transfer to slow cooker and add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook for 6-8 hours on low.
Serve over spaghetti or on French bread
My whole family loved this meal – not only is it easy, it is tasty and healthy. Using whole grain pasta makes this a good carb meal – just don’t eat too much pasta with the sausage!!
