Grilled Italian Sausage and Peppers with Tomato Pesto


Lazy Memorial Day with full freezers.  Easy.


Who doesn’t have the necessary?  Garlic, peppers and onions.  Okay, fresh oregano was a bonus 😉  But not absolutely necessary.


However, I would have the tomato pesto.


Grilled Italian Sausage and Peppers with Tomato Pesto

1 large onion, sliced

3 tbsp olive oil

1 yellow and 1 red pepper, sliced into strips

4-5 cloves fresh garlic

Fresh oregano, chopped

6 Italian sausages

6 buns, grilled

Tomato pesto

Soften the onion in the olive oil, then add the peppers and saute until crisp tender.  Add the garlic and continue to saute for about 2 minutes.  Sprinkle with the oregano, set aside and keep warm.

Grill the sausages until cooked and browned on a medium high grill.  Serve in the buns with the peppers on top and a dollop or two of tomato pesto.

    We regularly have a sausage sizzle for lunch on a Sunday this is a really nice idea, will have a go at this as I always like to change things up a bit

  7. What a super looking sausage and pepper combo that is…and with the tomato pesto, fantastic! We always have fresh oregano because it winters over here…hmmm, may have to try this!
