Sausage and Peppers is an Italian classic! This is a bit redesigned with loose Italian sausage turned into a stir fry.

Italian Sausage and Peppers Stir Fry is one of the easiest yet tastiest dishes to make in a hurry. This is also a dish you can add to. For example you could serve this tucked into side rolls, over pasta, over cauliflower rice, or with fried potatoes. I  like it just as it it, but I  encourage you to stretch it even further for your family as needed.

What Sausage do I Use for Sausage and Peppers Stir Fry?

Use loose Italian sausage, bright bell peppers (which are sweetest) and some onion. I  like my peppers softened, and I will fry them first with onion on a medium low heat. Once they are mostly softened, I add in a few garlic cloves, which I  later remove and then the sausage, which cooks fairly quickly. How fast is that? A dish in about twenty minutes or less!

If you think the pan has too much grease from the sausage, use paper towels to sop some of it up.
