Combine the fantastic flavors of two family-favorite dishes for a meaty meal. Perfect for potlucks!
pounds bulk Italian sausage
cups frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions (from 1-pound bag), thawed
cup chopped pepperoni
can (15 oz) pizza sauce
teaspoon Italian seasoning
roma (plum) tomatoes, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (5 oz)
Cook sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat 9 to 11 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain.
Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix sausage, stir-fry vegetables, pepperoni, pizza sauce and Italian seasoning in cooker.
Cover and cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours.
Stir in tomatoes. To serve, fill buns with sausage mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
Try making this recipe with a shredded Italian cheese blend instead of the mozzarella.
If the Italian sausage has a casing, remove and discard it before you brown the sausage.
Stir the sausage frequently during cooking to break it up into small pieces.
For an instant party, set the slow cooker on the counter or buffet table along with a basket of buns. Just add deli salads, pickles, olives and brownies for dessert.
