This simple and delicious Italian Sausage and Peppers recipe is a super easy and quick meal to throw together. Serve over rice, pasta or we stuffed it into hoagie rolls!
Mild Italian Sausage (hot if you prefer)
1 green pepper, thinly sliced
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
2 sweet onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Add vegetable oil to a large pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add sausages and cook until browned on all sides. Remove sausage from pan and set aside (Note: You do not need to cook it through at this point.)
Add onion and peppers to grease left in pan and cook over medium heat until softened. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Slice sausage into 1-inch pieces.
Return sausage to pan with all other ingredients.
Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until sausage is cooked through and sauce is thickened.
Serve on hoagie rolls if desired.
