Sausage Peppers and Onions in a Quick Tomato Sauce Recipe

School is out for most of us and summer is in full swing!  During this time all I want to do is be outside, and the LAST thing I want is to be slaving away over a hot stove in the kitchen.  That's why I LOVE meals like this Sausage Peppers and Onions in a Quick Tomato Sauce.

Whether it's a hot summer day or a busy weeknight, this is one of mine and Studhubs FAVORITE go-to quick and easy meals.  I know you are going to love it too so...

Let's Get Started!

Sausage Peppers and Onions in a Quick Tomato Sauce Recipe:
*Prep Time: 10 min *Cook Time: 20 min *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings: 4


  • 1 lb Italian Style Chicken Sausage
  • 28 oz Can of Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, sliced
  • 1 Onion, Sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Ground Pepper
  • Parsley and Parmesan to top

To begin you will need to brown your chicken sausages in a HOT pan for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Once the sausages are browned remove them from the pan and sit to the side.

I like using these chicken sausages because they are a little better for you and health is wealth, right!?!

Now to the hot pan you will add the peppers and onions.

Sauté for 2-3 minutes, just so that they start to get tender.

Now add the garlic to the pan and cook for 1 minute, until you smell it coming up from the pan.

Its at this point that I like to add the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.

The hot pan just wakes up the spices and helps to give you maximum flavor and who isn't about that!

Now you will add the diced tomatoes and...


You don't have to add the sugar, but it helps to cut the acid of the tomatoes which is a MUST for me.  :)

Stir everything together and return the sausages to the pan.

Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.

And there you have it!  A GORGEOUS quick and easy weeknight meal that won't have you in a hot kitchen for hours and that the entire family will love!

I like to top the pan with a little chopped parsley and grated parmesan cheese and you are ready to eat!  I simply cut a sausage into bite-sized pieces and serve over a bed of fluffy rice (that I made in my instant pot while I cooking this), but it's also AMAZING on a hoagie bun as well.  These Sausage Peppers and Onions in a Quick Tomato Sauce is so easy and delicious, and so simple to whip up when you just don't know what else to make.  I know you're going to love it so get in the kitchen and give it a try tonight!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
