Italian-Americans have a traditional dish made with Italian sausages and peppers. It is a hearty dish but it can be quite oily as the fat leaches out of the sausages. If you substitute chicken sausages and cook them on a rack above a roasting tin before adding them to the mixture of roasted red, orange and yellow peppers, onion and garlic you will have a much lighter but just as tasty a meal.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
1 pound of chicken sausages
1/2 a large onion – sliced and the slices separated into individual pieces of onion
6 garlic cloves – peeled and cut in half
3 peppers (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange) – de-seeded and cut into slices
1 – 2 tbsp. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place the sausages on a rack above a roasting tin.
Put the onion, garlic and peppers in a mixing bowl, pour over the oil, toss well and season with salt and pepper.
Tip mixture onto a roasting tray and cook both sausages and pepper mixture for 30 minutes.
Slice sausages and add to the peppers and onions and serve immediately.
