Chris and I eat chicken sausage pretty frequently, sometimes for breakfast, and sometimes as an easy dinner on hot dog rolls topped with mustard. Regardless of what time of day we’re having sausage, it is always paired with onions and peppers. Therefore, creating this Lightened Up Hot Italian Sausage and Pepper recipe was a no-brainer! This is an easy weeknight dinner, ready in an hour or less. It definitely packs a punch with the spicy sausage and crushed red pepper flakes, but the onion and green pepper balance out the heat, don’t worry!
