This week’s recipe for Slow Cooker Sausage and Peppers makes a perfect family meal for nights when everyone is going in different directions. You simply combine all of the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and then turn it to “keep warm” when you return home so the family can eat as they come and go.
The base for the dish is some canned diced tomatoes, a little tomato sauce, Italian seasonings and sliced onions and bell peppers.
For the sausage, I prefer to use this extra lean chicken Italian sausage – but you can also use pork or turkey Italian sausages.
To serve, split some buns, top with some sliced provolone or mozzarella cheese and top with the sausages, peppers, onions and sauce.
A fresh fruit or tossed green salad can complete your meal.
