Sausage and Pepper Skillet


  • 1 lb Italian sausage links, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (red, green, or yellow), thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped, for garnish (optional)
  • Cooked rice or crusty bread, for serving


  1. Cook the sausage: In a large skillet or frying pan, cook the sliced Italian sausage over medium heat until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Sauté the vegetables: In the same skillet, add the sliced bell peppers and onion. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized.
  3. Add garlic and tomatoes: Add the minced garlic to the skillet with the sautéed vegetables and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Stir in the diced tomatoes (with their juices) and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Combine everything: Return the cooked sausage to the skillet with the vegetables and tomato sauce. Stir well to combine, allowing the flavors to meld together. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes, until heated through and the sauce has thickened slightly.
  5. Serve: Serve the Sausage and Pepper Skillet hot, garnished with chopped fresh basil leaves if desired. Enjoy with cooked rice or crusty bread for a hearty and satisfying meal.
