Savory Sausage and Peppers Recipe

My mother gave me the recipe for this tasty kielbasa meal that's loaded with colorful pepper chunks. I like to use a sop mix that adds a hint of garlic, but you can substitute other varieties to suit your family's tastes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2-3 servings


  • 1/2 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 each medium sweet red pepper, sweet yellow pepper and green pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium onion, cut into small wedges
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (1.2 ounces) herb and garlic soup mix
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Hot cooked rice


  • 1. In a large skillet, brown sausage in oil over medium-high heat. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm. In the drippings, saute peppers and onion until crisp-tender.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the water and contents of one soup mix envelope (save the second envelope for another use). Add soup mixture, hot pepper sauce and sausage to the vegetables. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Serve with rice. Yield: 2-3 servings.

"Delicioius! I too could not find herb and garlic soup mix. It came out just as good pulling a few things from the spice cabinet and adding a little beef bouillon. I set some of the peppers and sausage aside without the seasoning for my picky 5 yr. old and it was just as good without the seasoning. The olive oil and sausage really enhanced the flavors of the peppers. Thank you for a great recipe to help use up a surplus of german sausage we had in the freezer and the bountiful garden we had this summer."

"I found it in a box similar to Lipton's onion soup box. I think the brand I found was Knorr."

"This recipe was great, but please let me know where you can get a pkg (1.2oz) herb & garlic soup mix. I could not find it in the grocery store. I used a pkg of onion soup mix instead and added some crushed garlic."
