This recipe is great for all those gorgeous bell peppers you see around this time of year but have no idea what to do with. It’s also an easy lunch that everyone will enjoy.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place pepper strips and onion in bottom of slow-cooker. Arrange chicken sausage on top and then pour diced tomatoes and tomato sauce on top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.

Step 2

Transfer warm sausage to a board and slice into 1/4-inch strips. Return sausage to pot and stir to mix; keep warm.

Step 3

Brush a grill pan with oil and place over medium heat. Brush bread slices on both sides with olive oil, then toast in batches, turning, until crisp and golden. Rub each slice lightly with garlic.

Step 4

Place 1 slice of toast on each plate. Spoon sausage mixture on top and sprinkle with basil and cheese. Top with second slice of toast.

Taste was good but the texture of the sausage was a little weird. Sauce was watery. I'll go back to grilling my sausage and peppers.

It's ok. I though the sauce turned out a little watery, and I'd say it's an "average" dish overall. Nothing to rave about, but the preparation is fairly easy and it's reasonably tasty.

I thought this was very good and extremely easy. Next time I may try broiling some fresh mozzarella or swiss cheese on top. I will definitely serve this again.
