Another family recipe that we have all the time.  We like things spicy and sweet.

This is the cover of the cookbook my Nane made us for Christmas, full of all her recipes. Sausage & Peppers is in there. P.S. That’s a picture of the dessert table at my wedding.  She made everything on it but the cake.

Sausage and Peppers:

2 lbs sweet Italian sausage
1/4 cup olive oil
3 large bell peppers (your choice of colors)
1 small Spanish onion
4 cups Marinara sauce
1 cup water

Cut the sausages into 2 inch pieces.  Pan fry the sausage with the oil on medium heat until sausage is cooked.  Drain oil fromt he pan.  Add peppers and onions and continute to sauté for a few minutes stirring constantly.  At this point, add marinara sauce and water.  Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Serves 4-5.



Follow The Recipe Extra:
The thing about this recipe is it’s easy to customize.  We like it spicy so I always throw in some crushed red pepper flakes and serve either with pasta or a really good french bread.  You can also go with sweeter and add fresh basil leaves and use a tomato vodka sauce with fresh tomatoes diced and added in.  This way is good with pasta, I like a Manicotti or a Gemelli.
