This super easy sausage and peppers recipe is sooo good: sautéed bell peppers and onions with hunks of juicy sausage. Extra flavor from Italian seasoning and garlic.



  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 large white onion, sliced into half-moons
  • 1213 ounce sausage links, cut into rounds
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teapsoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  • Optional: steamed white rice, for serving


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté bell peppers and onions together until soft and lightly caramelized, about 10-12 minutes. 
  2. Add in sausage rounds, stir together along with peppers/onions, and continue cooking until sausage achieves a golden brown color, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Next, add in minced garlic and sprinkle in seasonings. Stir together again and let cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Serve hot alongside steamed rice, if desired, and enjoy!


  1. Sausage and peppers will keep for 3-4 days stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
