"Boiling the sausage took much of the flavor and made for grey and awful looking sausage?? I don't understand why they were boiled!"

"I have made this for years but use Dr. Pepper when I saute the onions and peppers and I also use a little seasoned salt. I use lots of onions and peppers. I also use the sweet Italian sausage. They like to heap them up on the sausage. Easy and everyone always wants seconds.

I will use this recipe Sunday or Monday."

"To make this for a crowd-partially grill the italian sausages on a gas grill until browned and grill marked, then place them in a roaster. Cover with raw green peppers, onion, fresh mushrooms, canned diced tomatoes with italian seasonings. Use as much as you want! Then cover all with spaghetti sauce. I always add a packet of dried spaghetti sauce to my liquid sauce to thicken it up. Bake @ 325 for approx. 2 hours until sauce thickens and browns around the edges. WONDERFUL! Serve on italian buns with shredded mozzerella cheese! Can also be eaten with pasta! Best meal ever!"
