sausage and peppers over polenta


I love my slow cooker. There are two general situations that I will put it to use. 1: as the vessel for when I am cooking something low and slow. 2: when I would like my meal to cook itself.

This is one of those recipes that will “cook itself” if you have a slow cooker. All you need to do is combine ingredients, press a button, and in 4 hours, dinner is ready!

Sausage and peppers are a delicious, flavorful, and versatile recipe. You can put them in a sandwich, on top of polenta, or stir it into a big bowl of pasta.
