Italian sausage and peppers are often served at family reunions, fairs and other large gatherings. Alas, not all sausages are gluten free. Many sausages have fillers in them that are grain based. Fillers help cut the cost of using 100% meat in the sausage. The grain also helps to absorb the fat. You may have to be bold and ask your server for the brand of sausage used or whether they know the actual ingredients. Or just wait until you get home and follow this recipe for delicious gluten free sausage and peppers.
Today, my son and I had fun picking out 4 different colored peppers to sauté for our sausage and peppers dinner. The gluten free sausage that goes best with this dish is Premio Sweet Italian sausage.
Bring some color to your table tonight. I hope you enjoy sausage and peppers!
