So good! My husband and I love Italian sausage & peppers so this recipe just hit the spot for the two of us after a long day at the zoo with the kids. I super simplified this by using a bag a pre-cut frozen tricolor peppers & onions and a bag of pre-cooked pre-sliced Italian sausage. I sauteed the veggies & meat in a large skillet until tender then added in the delicious Classico sauce and stirred it all together until hot & bubbly. I went with Paula's suggestion and only used a bit over half the jar. This recipe takes minimal effort but you get maximum results. I served it with some crusty bread and even though it serves four hubby and I just kind of pigged out. This would also be amazing served over top of some rigatoni. Read More

One of our favorite meals is Italian Sausage and Peppers and this recipe was great-very saucy. Maybe next time we'll use half the sauce. Other than that excellent on rolls (we added a slice of provolone on top) Read More

It was just like the Italian sausage from the State Fair only better! Used Johnsonville Sausages. Saucy flavorful and a hit at our house! Will be making again! Read More

I loved the versatility of this recipe. Prepared as is it's great over your favorite pasta. If you reduce the amount of Classico sauce it makes an awesome sandwich with your choice of hard or soft roll. Delicious!!! Read More

For health reasons I can't have sugar or flour so I'm always looking for recipes that will be good without them. Since I couldn't have the bread I added more onion and bell peppers. Also we like things spicey so I used hot italian sausage instead of the sweet. I thought this tasted really great. Read More

Sausage peppers and onions are always a hit in this house. My husband said this was as good as you get in any Italian restaurant. I served it over pasta but it would be equally good on a roll. I used Johnsonville sausage so I needed to add a little olive oil because they are not as fatty as other sausage. It was delicious. Read More

YUM! This is one of our favorites! My only change was to use garlic salt as I didn't have any fresh garlic. Hubby loved it! It was gone by the time I remembered to take a photo! I served it on Italian rolls. Thank you Alesha for sharing! Read More
