Italian Sausage and Peppers

Meghanne-Renée Godwin


I made this dish when I was on a budget yet had a little extra to spend, after I was too bored of the usual ramen or pasta. I have served it as a sandwich on a french roll, and I have served it over rice. I prefer having it with rice.

P.S.: I use sea salt because it does not have the dangers that regular table salt does. Therefore, I can use it generously without feeling guilty.

How to Make Italian Sausage and Peppers


  1. Wash all the fresh produce. Cut both bell peppers and the onion into spears. Mince the garlic. Set garlic aside.
  2. Heat a pan or a skillet to medium-high heat. Put the olive oil on pan. Spread the pepper and onion mixture throughout the pan, coating thoroughly with the olive oil. Season with sea salt and pepper.
  3. After letting the peppers and onions cook for a few minutes, add the minced garlic and the sausages. Season with sea salt and pepper once more.
  4. Let the sausages cook until slightly browned on both sides. Remove and cut into pieces, then put sausage pieces back into pan. Cook until sausage is fully cooked.
  5. Once everything is browned, add the water and scrape what may have stuck off of the bottom of the pan. Season one last time and let everything sit for a few minutes with the heat turned to low.
