{Katie’s Kitchen} Baked Italian Sausage and Peppers

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard 

EASY PEASY! That’s my theme this week for this dinner recipe! You only need a few ingredients and you’ve got yourself a delicious meal.

You will need sweet Italian sausage. You can normally find them 5-6 in a package from your local grocery store.

I started out chopping three peppers (2 green, 1 red) and slicing an onion. Lay the vegetables in the bottom of a 9×13 glass dish.

You can either use a can of crushed tomatoes, then season with pepper, salt, basil, and garlic powder OR you can you a jar of your favorite red sauce and pour it over top of the peppers and onion.

Then slice your sausage into about 4 pieces and place on top of everything in the dish.

Bake at 400˚F for 30-40 minutes, or until sausage is cooked through.

So yummy! You can serve over egg noodles or with cauliflower mashed potatoes on the side!
