Sausage & Peppers

This is a classic Italian dish or to be more accurate Italian American dish that is commonly served in restaurants and street festivals. Here in NY we have two annual Italian festivals, the San Gennaro festival in Manhattan’s Little Italy and Ferragosto in the Bronx’s Little Italy. Regardless of which festival you attend, you will definitely be able to lay your hands on a plate of Sausage & Peppers.

Although Sausage & Peppers are often served as is or just with some crusty Italian bread, it can also be made into a complete meal by combining it with a plate of pasta.
