With the chilly, rainy weather outside, Ryan and I decided to make a hot, aromatic dinner of Italian sausage with peppers and onions.
Our friends Pete and Merri made this dish at their Super Bowl party this year and Ryan and I loved it.
Thankfully Pete shared his recipe with me today and I was pleased to see that it was super easy. You know I love simple recipes!
All you have to do is cut Italian sausages with scissors (do not use a knife or the meat will come out of the casings) and put the meat into a 2-inch baking dish (sprayed with cooking spray) with sliced onions and peppers. You can then top it all with olive oil, salt and pepper or omit all the spices since the Italian sausage is very flavorful on its own. Easy, right?
We let the sausage and peppers bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, stirring the mixture every once in a while.
Our apartment smelled like heaven!
I enjoyed my sausage and veggie mix on a big piece of Joseph’s lavash bread.
For dessert I enjoyed a chocolate mint Attune bar. I received a package of these in the mail from the company today and was excited to try the bars.
It was so stinkin’ delicious! I gave Ryan a bite too and he agreed.
I’ll do a full review on the bars once I try the various flavors.
Off to keep warm by cuddlin’ on the couch watching Friends on DVD with Ryan. Good night!
