Sweet Italian Sausage and Pepper Pizza

Sweet Italian Sausage and Pepper Pizza2 @ NancyCjpgIf you’re a pizza fan, I think you’ll enjoy this recipe that I first made several years ago—Sweet Italian Sausage and Pepper Pizza. I put my own spin on a Ragù recipe called Sausage & Peppers by making it into a pizza—two pizzas, in fact! In addition to the yummy sweet Italian sausage, bell peppers, and Ragù® Old World Style® Traditional Pasta Sauce, I added some chopped onion, Mozzarella Cheese, and used Italian bread shells for the crusts to keep the recipe quick and easy.

It started out as a very bready breakfast casserole, but I made some small changes to it over time and I like it even more now. This recipe has more bread in it than the typical breakfast casserole, which is a plus because it nicely absorbs the egg mixture and doesn’t turn out runny or soggy. Another plus is that this recipe is so convenient to make because you can put the ingredients together the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning! Continue reading

Sweet and Sassy Chili

Chili makes the perfect meal during the cold-weather seasons. And it’s an easy menu item for game day parties or tailgating. After all, who doesn’t love chili? This Sweet & Sassy Chili has a mildly spicy flavor, but it also has a little sweetness too, with a touch of brown sugar mixed in. And it tastes great with some diced peached on top! Of course, you’ll still want to top your chili with some sour cream, corn chips, and cheddar cheese, but the addition of those diced peaches give the chili a great sweet-and-salty flavor!
