Get your hands ready to make some big Italian gestures, because sausage and peppers are on the menu. Que bellisima! It isn’t quite your nona’s recipe, but we hope it isn’t far from it. Made with plant-based sausage, this recipe is a hardy, homestyle recipe that goes great with pasta, grains, or soft polenta. One of our favorite ways to enjoy this recipe is to stuff the saucy sausage and peppers mixture into some hero sandwich rolls.

Plant-based meat alternatives are readily available at most grocery stores. Choosing the one you want will depend entirely on you. If you see that the sausage has Italian seasonings or is branded as a vegan Italian sausage, select that option for this recipe. One thing to keep in mind about plant-based sausages is that they can be a bit oily, especially if they come in a casing that you need to peel away before cooking. For this reason, don’t be too aggressive with your knife when you cut the sausages. Try to cut them into even medallions to ensure an even cook.

This recipes requires you to first sauté the vegan sausage and then remove it from the pan. The reason to do this is because you don’t want the vegan sausage to break down and crumble when you add the crushed tomatoes to the pan. Once you cook the peppers, garlic, and onion, add the sauce and seasonings. Simmer for about 10 minutes, add the reserved sausages and parsley, and then enjoy on some hero rolls.
