Sausage and peppers skillet
For Italian-Americans, sausage and peppers is a classic comfort food dish. It's simple, it's colorful and, as you'll be able to tell with the recipe below, it couldn't be simpler to make. It's delicious on its own or served over pasta; start the water boiling when you start the skillet, and dinner will come together in a snap.
Lasagna stuffed peppers
The recipe below combines the best of two Italian-American comfort food classics: stuffed peppers and lasagna. Bell peppers are stuffed with a cheesy combo of ricotta and mozzarella along with your favorite pasta sauce. Rich and flavorful, these stuffed peppers will soon become a family classic.
Broccoli and rice stuffed peppers
Here is a way to get your kids to eat their veggies: roasted bell pepper cups stuffed with creamy rice, broccoli and cheese. This wonderful vegetarian side dish is warm, comforting and filling. Double up and you could even serve this hearty dish as an entire meal. You may want to make extra because your family and friends are going to be fighting over who gets the last one.
Italian sausage and pepper sliders
Italian sausage and peppers is a classic dish for a reason. Tender, flavorful sausage mix in with sliced bell peppers, and all of it swims in a delicious tomato sauce. It really doesn't get any better than that when you want a traditional Italian meal. The next time you want to shake that classic up just a bit, make the recipe below.
Red bell pepper fettechuni
Fettuccine Alfredo is a classic dish, and one that just about everyone loves. The cream sauce coats pasta that's been perfectly cooked, and lots of Parmesan cheese is both in and on top of the dish. It's Italian food at its best. But because Alfredo isn't truly authentic Italian (it's a dish someone in the United States came up with), it's ripe for a few variations. In the recipe below, roasted red peppers are added to take this dish up a notch.
