How to make sausage and peppers skillet

Print this recipe
For Italian-Americans, sausage and peppers is a classic comfort food dish. 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.
Of course, with so few ingredients, quality is key. You'll want to choose good-quality Italian sausages. Pork is classic, but you can opt for chicken if you'd like a lower-fat option. Sweet or spicy sausage both work equally well, so choose the ones your family prefers.
