Hi everybody! The Fresh Pioneer is back and I have a fun dinner that is truly versatile. My friend Mindy shared this with me and I (FINALLY) tried it out. So delicious! We're big fans of this now. I'm not sure what to call it because it can be changed and tweaked in many ways, so I'll just say it's a versatile Italian veggie and sausage dish!
3 red bell peppers
6 celery stalks
3 lbs mushrooms
2 lbs Italian flavored sausage
2 large cans tomato sauce
2 large cans chopped tomatoes
1 large container V8 (spicy version or regular)
Start adding spices. We've cooked this with spicy V8 and added Italian seasoning, with regular tomato sauce and added cumin and oregano, and with canned tomatoes and Italian seasoning.
It makes a difference because...
Here's the really versatile part:
you can serve this over noodles, in a bread bowl, or over rice pilaf. I even had some leftover over steamed cauliflower. SO GOOD! I really think this might be one of those recipes you can't ruin.
Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to stop by my author page at Mary Jane Hathaway, or at my blog The Things That Last!
