Italian Sausage with Peppers
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 35 min.
Great recipe as written! Sprinkle a little mozzarella and parmesan on top- yum! I have also made this in the pressure cooker. Joyce Moynihan Volunteer Field Editor
My boyfriend said this was delicious and he wouldn't change anything. I did add a little mozzarella on top of his sandwich. It just looked like it needed it. I, myself, was not a big fan of the tomatoes with the peppers, but that's only because I don't really liked canned tomatoes. I didn't want to alter the recipe in any way though before we rated it.
This is awesome!!! Taste just like it does at fair! Even BETTER! My hubby and I were very impressed...been telling everyone about it everywhere i go! :) gonna try to do ahead and stick in crockpot...hope it works!
I was raised near Chicago, IL and have searched for years for a recipe to duplicate what I used to get there - now I have!!! This is by far the best recipe I've tasted outside of Chi Town!!! Thanks so much!
Great recipe. We enjoyed it, even with the tomatoes! Why do people feel that they have to mention that they are of Italian Decent, then critisize the recipe? Beckie Clemetson never said she was Italian and this is how it's done! She said it's a fair favorite!
I agree with salliegadden. So WHAT if you have never heard of making sausage and peppers with tomatoes! So??? Why be so critical? If you don't want to add tomatoes, then don't!!!! That's just being nit picky. That isn't a review.
I add Marsala wine to the tomato base and it is very tasty, it does say Italian sausage---with peppers and sauce so people dont be so quick to judge, this is a great receipe, thanks
I make something very similar to this & everyone loves it! Just because you don't want tomatoes in "Italian" cooking, does not mean that no one else will like the recipe. It just says Italian Sausage with peppers, not Italian cooking. I think everyone should give it a chance before pre-judging the tastes.
I have never heard of using tomatoes in the Sausage and Peppers dish. When I make it I use a tablespoon of capers, a dash of balsamic vinegar or a dash of left over red wine and three colors of bell peppers (green, red, and yellow). With the colorful peppers and the onions and the sausage it makes a very pretty presentation at the table.
I've been making a recipe similar to this for many years. My SIL is Italian, and whether you use tomatoes in the recipe or not is entirely regional, according to him. I am Spanish, and I can attest to the wide variety of dishes that vary in preparation according to region. Tomatoes or no tomatoes (I also use a little wine in this), this is so tasty, I do recommend trying it!
