Italian Sausage and Peppers for Father’s Day

Italian Sausage and peppers on a bun always reminds me of my Dad.

When we were kids he would take us to the fair in the summer time. We would ride the Ferris wheel and the bumper cars and tilt a whirl. Then we would eat mini doughnuts, candy apples and Italian sausage with peppers on a bun! YUM!
It feels like summer to me.

My Dad makes his own Italian sausage, but I ate all the stuff he gave me so I had to buy some… it was pretty good but not as good as his! It will do in a pinch!

Here is what you need,

1 pkg of hot Italian sausage
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
2 medium peppers, sliced thinly (any color will do I used red and yellow)
1 can or jar of your favourite Italian style sauce, pizza sauce would do too
Fresh grated Parmesan chees2
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt/pepper to taste
Hot dog buns

In a medium skillet saute the sliced onion and peppers in the olive oil until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill up your sausages until browned and cooked through.
Warm up your tomato sauce in a bowl in the microwave and grate yourself some Parmesan cheese.

OK now you are ready…
Cut a good old hot dog bun and cut it in half,

Slather on some of the warmed sauce, top with a grilled sausage and some of the sauteed peppers and onions. Top with some fresh grated Parmesan.

So so good.

Thank you Dad, for taking us to the fair and buying us overpriced food and riding rides that made you feel sick! You are the best! Love you!
Happy Father’s Day!
