    I made this into a hoagie! I found whole wheat, low carb hoagie rolls at Publix and tore out some of the middle, spooned in the sausage and peppers, topped with fat free mozzarella and I was in heaven! Next time, I'll spoon the leftovers on pasta! - 3/28/09

    This is so good. I used Johnsonville Smoked Turkey Sausage today. Sometimes I use my own homemade venison sausage or my chicken/turkey sausage. You can't go wrong with this recipe. Plus, it's so easy! - 1/26/09

    This was delicious!! We love sausages any way and this was a very good way to have them. We cut up the sausages into rounds and served over wild rice. Other than that we didn't change a thing. - 9/1/09

  • I cooked this tonight and just finished eating. DElicious! Also very easy and fast. I used one red and one green bell pepper for color and used garlic, basil, and oregano diced tomatoes. I think I will try with mushrooms next time. Very filling, I will definitely be making this again. - 8/25/10

  • I like this recipe. I used 4 peppers and regular pork Italian sausage. Skipped the onion and sauce. Calories were higher but still much less than the traditional recipe route. Next time I will use turkey sausage and crushed tomatoes. - 3/13/10
