Sausage and Peppers

I love recipes that could work for almost any occasion. Spring grilling? Summer holidays? Dressed down in a sandwich bun for a tailgate? Thrown on a plate of fancy rice and linen napkin? This recipe works for all of those. And, it’s super quick. When I make this, I look for the best and most flavorful sausage because that is going to provide the base flavor for this dish. Pick out bright peppers and sweet summer onions to balance the spiciness from the cayenne. Including cutting the vegetables, this dish goes from fridge to table in 30 minutes, making it perfect for this weekend’s football games.
