Sausage and Peppers

I was going to make something else for dinner tonight but realized I had 5 green peppers in the fridge that needed to be used up so I decided to make sausage and peppers.  I don't really have much of a recipe and just made it up as I went along but it turned out really good!

Sausage and Peppers

2 lbs. Italian sausages, cut into 1" pieces
5 green peppers, seeded and cut into chunky strips
3 lbs. onions (about 5 large), sliced
4 Tbsp. butter
14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Saute the sausage, peppers and onions in the butter in a large frying pan in batches or alternately, you can put the sausage and onions in a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes at 350 degrees then add in the peppers and cook an additional 30 minutes.  Add in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper and just heat through.  This is great on rolls, pasta or just on a plate with a nice crusty bread on the side.
