Simple Sunday



One of my dearest friends, who, like myself is of Irish and German descent (not exactly the pillars of culinary creativity), married an Italian man with a mother who could quite possibly out-cook Mario Batali. Ever since my friend's mother in law showed me this dish, it has been a staple in our weekly menu. This recipe for Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions is a rustic, easy-to-prepare dish that can be great for a crowd or for a simple Sunday night meal.  It is budget friendly and oh-so satisfying. I love simple dishes that are as fabulous as this one! We like to pop it in the oven around 4:00 on a lazy Sunday afternoon for an early dinner with relatively no clean-up. This easy meal is a perfect way to serve your family dinner without having a gargantuan Sunday night-dinner mess to clean up when all you really want to do is wind down after the weekend and savor a couple more hours of peace before the work and school week start up again. Serve these yummy sausages with pasta or on warm French Bread as a rustic sandwich. Add pizza and mozzarella cheese for some added "zazz". Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

1 package of Mild or Hot Italian Sausage
1 Medium Onion
