Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Cheese, glorious CHEESE!

 So, this is by request of my 15 year old girl child that is hungry for some real food. I guess mom living 800 miles away and dad working a lot means too many heat and eat dinners from her big brother. Shout out to the 18 year old man child for doing his best to keep them fed. 

Sausage, pepper, onions, cheese--what more do we need?


Italian sausage (pre-cooked if you want, no judgement here) I used 5

2 Bell peppers, any color, I like to mix it up

ricotta cheese, a few scoops

mozzarella cheese (get pre-shredded, it's easier)

1 small onion (I used half a medium one)

garlic powder


Italian seasoning

Olive oil, about 2 tablespoon I didn't measure, just pour on a little


If using uncooked sausage, brown in pain- set aside to cool a bit (I browned them the night before and then put them in the fridge) Skip this step if you're smart and bought premade (you could also use meatballs--just saying, options)

Cut onion into slices, and then cut in half (or use frozen ones, again easier)

Cut peppers into slices (or buy frozen peppers and onions together)

*If you use frozen, defrost them a bit in the microwave and then drain the water out)

Throw peppers and onions in a casserole dish. Drizzle with olive oil, add salt, pepper, garlic powder and 2-3 dollops of ricotta. Bake at 350-375 for about 10 minutes

While the veggies are in the oven, cut sausage into bite size pieces, about 1 inch. 

When the timer goes off, place sausage in with veggies and stir. 

Bake 10-15 more minutes.

Take it out and add more ricotta, and a nice layer of mozzarella, a little more pepper, and Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. 

Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
