Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers

I have an everyday Italian recipe for you today! Easy Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers. This was my first time cooking sausages in the slow cooker, and oh my, have I been missing out. The low, slow cooking method makes the sausages fall-apart tender and thickens the sauce as if it had been simmering away on your stove all day. The addition of onions and peppers makes this recipe a dynamo all-in-one meal, and you have plenty of ways to serve it!

When I’m scheming ways to create healthy recipes that taste as scrumptious as their no-holds-barred indulgent counterparts, turkey- or chicken-based Italian sausage is one of my most treasured tools.

This one-pan Sausage and Rice Casserole was one of the first healthy meals I learned to cook, this sheet pan Italian Sausage and Peppers hits the spot when I’m in a hurry, and this Italian Sausage with Butternut Squash Gnocchi (and its cousin, Skillet Lasagna) are two of your recent favorites.

Although it is lean, Italian turkey sausage (and/or chicken sausage) is packed with spices and more marbled than plain ground turkey or chicken, meaning that it has more flavor built in. More flavor=less work for the cook (ahem, you and me) since it has extra pizzazz right out of the package.

Turkey sausage does still take some finesse to maximize its flavor (since it is lean, I would not not recommend throwing a plain link on the grill or in the oven then walking away for 20 minutes to see what happens), but with a trusty recipe (helllllllo, this ultra tasty Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers), it can help you create some of the best tasting healthy dinner recipes to ever come from your kitchen.
