Italian Sausage with Bell Peppers and Potatoes - a quick midweek dinner idea the whole family will love!
450gms– 1 lb. red bell peppercleaned and thickly sliced
450gms– 1 lb. medium potatoespeeled and cut into 6 pieces
450gms– 1 lb. Italian pork sausageroughly chopped
100ml– 1/3 cup tomato puree
2tbspextra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste
Put the bell pepper, potatoes, onion, garlic, basil leaves, tomato puree, extra virgin olive oil and salt in a big bowl and mix well.
Put the mixture into a baking dish. Top with the chopped sausage and mix.
Cover with aluminium foil and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 350°F for 40 to 60 minutes or until the sausage is cooked through and the potatoes are golden. Halfway through the cooking time, remove the aluminium foil from the baking dish and keep cooking.
Serve warm with some crusty bread (like my easy ciabatta).
The exact cooking time will depend mainly on the thickness of the sausage you are using. The ticker the sausage, the longer it will take to cook.
