Sausage, Peppers and Onions

A delicious way to enjoy vegetables is to blend them.

Sausage, Peppers and Onions
Your favorite sausage, assortment of Bell or sweet peppers, and onions.
Cut vegetables into bite size pieces or slices. Place in baggie and marinade with favorite seasonings. May leave in baggie up to overnight when needing to prepare in advance.
Precook whole, half or bite size pieces of sausage, either in pan, or by grilling (please see note below regarding the Italian sausages).
Add olive oil, vegetables and any seasonings you enjoy and stir fry them.
Note: Stir fry for crispy vegetables, or cover and simmer
for well cooked vegetables.
Add sausage to the peppers or serve on the side.
Note: for a delicious change, add cut tomatoes.
(in featured photos 3 large red bells, 2 large green bells, 1 large yellow onion, 4 chopped tomatoes, garlic and seasoning were used to feed 8 adults)
Our favorite sausage is from the local Publix butcher. They carry a variety of flavors like Parsley with Cheese, Mild, Hot, and other flavors - all without preservatives or nitrates in their Italian sausages. The butchers will accept special orders, offer special pricing on certain sizes, prepare sausage patties, or just plain sausage without the covering. Often, their Italian sausages are on special. That's when we stock the freezer up!

Serve with Hoagie rolls for sandwiches, or pasta if desired.
