Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 4-5
  • 2 12-oz packages kielbasa or smoked sausage, sliced into 2" sections
  • 3 bell peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large onion, peeled and sliced into rings
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 12-oz can tomato paste
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the sausage pieces in the bottom of a heavy-bottomed, oven-safe dutch oven or baking dish. Top with peppers, onions, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Combine tomato sauce and tomato paste in a medium bowl, then spread over the top of the peppers and onions. Cover tightly, and bake for 2 hours, stirring halfway through the baking time. Serve on crusty rolls.
I like beef sausage, but you can get whatever you like.

If you have a little extra time, try browning the sausage, onions, and peppers a little before adding the tomato sauce mixture and popping it in the oven. It takes a few extra minutes, but it adds another dimension of flavor.
