Hello everyone, sorry I forgot to put up a post yesterday. Happy St Patrick's Day as well. This recipe is not an Irish meal but you can have this the day after if you wish. Its my take on sausage and peppers. I had to use up some ground beef so I figured to throw in some meatballs as well. My family loved it and it seemed to have worked very well together too.
I cooked this all in my slow cooker and it came out great and was very easy to make, it just has a lot of ingredients.
1 smoked sausage cut up
1 garlic clove minced
1 onion chopped
1 orange bell pepper or any color you choose sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced
1 can of diced tomatoes and juice
1 pound of ground beef
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 envelope of onion soup mix dry
Egg noodles or any kind of pasta you like
In a large skillet add some extra virgin olive oil and put in all the veggies just to get them soft. Now add the sausage just until its heated through. From here we add the veggies and the sausage to the slow cooker and top with a can of diced tomatoes. Now onto the meatballs. Mix the onion soup mix, egg and garlic and onion powder together. Form little balls and fry them in the skillet you just used for your veggies and sausage. You just want to brown them not cook them all the way through because they will finish cooking in the slow cooker. Add them into the slow cooker and put the slow cooker on low. Cook for about 4-6 hours. You can serve this alone with a crusty piece of garlic bread or serve over any kind of pasta you like. Top with Parmesan cheese. I served this with garlic bread over some egg noodles and it worked great. Live, laugh and love everyone !
