Easiest Sausage, Pepper and Onion Recipe ever...

A month or so ago I was chatting with Aggie from Aggie's Kitchen on Twitter (follow me there).  We were talking about dinner ideas and it was decided that dinner was going to be sausage, peppers and onions.  But I was feeling real lazy and insisted on doing it in the crock pot.  Neither of us were really sure it would work.  But it did and...

It turned out good.  Really, really good.  So good in fact that I make it that way at least every other week now.

Sausage, Peppers and Onions in the Crock pot

  • 1 package of Italian style sausage (chicken or pork both work well)
  • 2 large peppers sliced lengthwise
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 can of Northern Beans, rinsed and drained (optional)

  • Cut sausage links into pieces and brown in a small bit of oil.
  • Place peppers, onions, garlic, oregano, tomatoes and beans (if using) in crockpot.  
  • Drain the sausage and add to the crockpot.
  • Cook on low for 5-6 hrs or high for 3-4.
  • Serve over rice, pasta or on a toasted roll like I have above.
