    Tastes great, quick and easy. Substituted dry vermouth for the cooking wine.

    I accidentally overdid the ground black and chopped red peppers given that I had mild sweet Italian sausage on hand, but it was pretty tasty otherwise. It went well with rice too.

    Loved it! I crumbled / fried the Italian sausage; set aside . Then prepared the veggies and added mushrooms and spinach. The veggies were done more like a stir fry, and meat / canned diced tomatoes, broth dded to the pan at the end. I swerved it with a smaller portion of pasta, and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. WOW the meal was delicious and satisfying.

    Would definitely make this again. Used hot sausages, which we prefer to sweet/mild, and it turned out great

    Used cagun flavored sausage as the local grocery only had mild Italian sausage, the flavor was great, with the right kick of hot. The kids were not fans of the oregano and basil flavors, but next time I would just use less.

    I didn’t have hot sausage, just sweet, but I think it would have been better if I did, next time I’ll definitely use that instead. We aren’t super excited about onion so next time I’ll use half as much of that, I’d also be sure to cook the sausage a little longer at the start.

    It was good and easy to follow, but I think next time I would up the spices (even more than I did this time)

    It tastes pretty good. I didn't use hot Italian sausage, because I didn't have it on hand. And I think next time I will for a little added kick. Put it with some white rice. Delicious!

    i just made this while looking for something relatively cheap and healthy. I ended up serving it over Angel hair pasta and it was amazing.

    Big hit with the family! I happened to have zucchini so added that also. I served it right on top of some Texas toast with a salad on the side. YUMMY! 😄 My phone only showed 4 stars for some reason but it's a 5 star for my family!

    Loved it. Added some Marsala and liked it so much we made it again two days later. My first time with sausage and peppers and I’m a fan.
