Sausage and Peppers

This simple and flavorful dish is classic Italian comfort food.  Served by itself, this is a wonderful lunch, or with pasta or on a crusty Italian roll, a hearty dinner.

Cooking the peppers low and slow brings out their inherent sweetness.  The addition of the chicken broth to deglaze the pan after cooking the sausage adds a rich depth of flavor, and the fresh herbs, added at the very end, brightens the dish.

This recipe is so simple as to scarcely be a recipe - more a process to assemble the dish.  Try different flavors of sausage and different herbs.  Or stay traditional - there is a reason it is a classic!

  1. I made something like this earlier this week. It was delicious! I had a bunch of bell peppers that I had to get rid of before they went bad, so I made it with pork chops. Big hit! Thanks for sharing. Pinning!
