I love the holidays, but I have to admit that I am pretty stressed at this time of year. There never seems to be enough time in the day to get all the things done that I want to do. That is where simple meals like this one comes in handy.
We love Italian sausage and eat it often if it is not on pizza, in sandwiches, or over pasta. I have been experimenting with Italian sausage links for about the past month. I tried making them in the slow cooker with tomato sauce, green peppers, and onions… I wasn’t really happy with the end result.
This version of baking the Italian sausage with the veggies in the oven is my preferred way. The links were done to perfection and the veggies were tender and perfect for the sandwiches that I had in mind.
And one of the best things I was able to complete everything in just under an hour. No stress in this meal, really. Serve it with a delicious bun, side salad, or maybe some pasta. It’s perfect for the busiest time or any time of the year.
