Saucy sausage, peppers and onions, Crockpot Meal

Are you having to make last minute food decisions for the holiday? Have no fear I have an easy suggestion to help you.  We just finished lunch and I quickly wanted to post our lunch/dinner for a last minute food idea for you. Sausage, variegated  cut peppers, garlic,onions seasoned with pinch of salt and pepper in tomato sauce.

2 lb. link sausage(I used mild and hot Italian.

1 -28 oz. can tomato sauce
1 -28 oz. can diced petite tomatoes 
Fresh basil 
3 cloves fresh garlic 
Pinch salt and pepper 
cleaned and sliced variegated peppers and onions
Note:  colorful peppers are much sweeter than green peppers and are much milder too but you can use green peppers also.  Enjoy!

Place sausage links on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for approximately 10 minutes or until browned slightly.

Place diced tomatoes, tomato sauce in your crockpot set on high.  Add sausage, garlic( I used whole cloves for easy removal) and basil.
Cover and cook approximately 4 hours on high and 6 hours on low .

I added my cooked peppers and onions 10 minutes before serving to avoid over cooking.

NOTE: today we had the sausage and pepper/onions over Basmati rice .  Tomorrow I'll serve with rolls and macaroni salad.  Yummy!

You can cook your sliced peppers and onions in oven as well while you are waiting for the sausage to cook or Note: you can do all at the same time on the same cookie sheet if you find it easier. 

Sprinkle salt and pepper and a little olive oil on peppers and onions if you do them separately.

From my kitchen to yours,
