One red and one yellow pepper

Yesterday while at the grocery store I bought a red and a yellow bell pepper because I could not remember if the recipe I was following needed them or not. It didn't.
So BESIDES the usual fajitas I typically make using these colorful peppers, is there another SIMPLE recipe that would feature, or make their use, worthwhile? No salads please

+1 on the salsicce con pepperoni. although a recipe may not be needed it's so simple. just the directions.

grill or griddle the sausages (i like premio brand if you can get it, pac) until almost cooked through, then saute two sliced onions and peppers for a few minutes in evoo over medium heat. add the sausages to the peppers and onions, cover, and cook over medium for just a few minutes more to finish cooking the sausages. it's all done in about 15 to 20 minutes.

serve on hero rolls with a little sauce on the side and grated cheese if you like. that's pretty much the way it's done at dozens and dozens of booths at the boardwalk on the jersey shore.

Sausage and peppers, duh. It's been so long since I made this is completely skipped my feeble mind Probably because I always use the cheaper green peppers, but yellow and red would set it off nicely, especially with hot sausage

I'll keep the stuffed peppers in mind, Kades. I've never made those before and have been meaning to.

Sausage and peppers it is. I just need to pick up some decent sub rolls.

You could make the S&P into a sauce over pasta...

In our family, we serve sausage and peppers as the meat dish. I partially freeze the sausage and then slice into medallions. Also when sliced it is easier to eat in a sub.

I envision a spicy Cajun style cream sauce.

We always put a couple of bell pepper colors, along with onions and garlic, in our meat sauce for spaghetti. Sometimes I use short pasta and bake it instead.
