WHAT’RE THE SIDES TO SERVE WITH THE ITALIAN SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS RECIPE?
This hearty dish can be enjoyed on its own but you can also enjoy it with a salad. A simple green salad without an overpowering dressing is best. Coleslaw also pairs very well.
You can also serve it alongside bread-like breadsticks, dinner rolls, crusty artisan bread, pita bread, garlic bread, or hot dog buns. Use it as a filling in sandwiches, tortilla rolls, and wraps.
Enjoy it with vegetables like mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes or mashed cauliflower.
You can even use it in stuffed peppers or stuffed potatoes.
My family really likes it with pasta. Any type will work fine. Healthier alternatives to that would be zoodles (zucchini noodles) and spaghetti squash.
Try it with soup. It tastes delicious with creamy soups.
Some other filling sides are quinoa and rice.
