  1. Slice each sausage link into 5 pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, and cook until browned, turning as needed.
  2. Drain excess grease, then add the green, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, and Italian seasoning. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over all, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid, and stir. Add the garlic and onion to the pan. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover, and simmer for 15 more minutes. Stir, then top with mozzarella cheese. Cover and cook for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Remove from the heat and enjoy.

This was great. I followed the recipe exactly and am glad I did. My husband said it tasted like something he had in a restaurant only better. Even my kids who do not eat peppers and onions if they know they are there ate them. My 10 year old commented that they did not taste like peppers. We had it over pasta with a salad. I can’t wait to try it again this summer with peppers and onions fresh from our garden!!!

I don't understand the rave about this recipe. I added two canse of diced tomatoes and still needed more. It lacked flavor. It was full of garlic with nothing else to help it.

This is so good but I added Marsalla wine for extra flavor.

I made this for my family about a week ago and they are still talking about it!!! I followed the recipe exactly and it was just perfect. One thing I did do was use more sausage and did half mild and half hot- amazing!!!!!

I used this as a sandwich filling and found it great. Just prepare as stated, then pile it on a loaf of french bread cut in half lengthwise, pile on the cheese and slip under the broiler for a few minutes. Guys love it for great half-time lunch!

AMYM20, this is a fabulous recipe. When I served this dish for dinner, it was over penne. I did not drain the tomatoes, and I added marsala wine to bring out the flavor of the sausage and the sweetness of the peppers. I also expanded on the recipe, adding a zucchini, mushrooms and a summer squash. The next day, I added the mozzarella chese and served on toasted garlic subs. Absolutely delicious both times! Daddy sure taught you well, and thanks for the post.

Note, There is no mention of adding pasta to this recipe. We who cook all the time know how much and when to do so, but young new cooks need to know this stuff.

My family is really reluctant to try new things.....But I did this and they loved it! I added one more can of tomatoes and served it over rice. It was a BIG hit!
