Skillet Italian Sausage, Peppers and Onions – Simple, scrumptious home cooking at its best! Serve over pasta, polenta, potatoes or on crusty rolls. | thecomfortofcooking.com

Simple and rustic as it looks, sausage and peppers is one of our favorite ever comfort foods. The sweet, strong garlicky aroma, the sound of the spattering oil as it cooks, and the heat of the pan warming your hands as you heap scoopfuls onto your plate. I love everything about this mouthwatering meal. It tastes like home to me.

I don’t remember eating it much as a kid, probably because I didn’t appreciate the gorgeous colors and finger-licking-good flavors as much as I appreciated frozen fish sticks. But, as an adult (when did that happen?), I’ve come to really crave wholesome, hearty home cooking. With a little Mediterranean-inspired flair, of course!
