  • 2 (19 oz) packages Johnsonville Italian Sweet Sausages
  • 4 red peppers sliced
  • 4 green peppers sliced
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • hot dog buns or cooked pasta, to serve


  • Slice up all the green peppers, red peppers and onions. This takes the most time in the preparation. The rest is a breeze!
  • Pop all of your sliced veggies into a wide (or oval) 4 to 6-quart slow cooker.
  • Season veggies with Italian seasoning, garlic powder along with salt and pepper.
  • In a bowl or measuring cup, whisk together tomato paste with 1 cup warm water.
  • Pour this tomato paste mixture over peppers and onion. Stir well. Cover and allow to cook on low for 4-6 hours (stirring occasionally).
  • When peppers and onions are soft and cooked, it's time to start grilling up those sausages! Place 5 Johnsonville Italian Sweet Sausages onto the grates of the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill.
  • Close lid and turn on the power button. Now, sit back and relax! The grill will do all the work! There is a thermometer inside the grill that will ensure the sausages reach the perfect temperature (about 10-15 minutes).
  • The grill will beep when sausages are ready! Continue with the second pack of Italian sweet sausages.
  • Place cooked sausages into your slow cooker along with the sausage and peppers. Sir it all around. Turn slow cooker on the warm setting and cover until ready to serve!
  • Serve it all up by itself or on hot dog buns!
  • Note: If you like, you can serve it up my favorite way! Slice up the sausages and mix it all together with the onions and peppers mixture. The sausage will really soak up the flavors!


Tip: The nutrition facts for this recipe are without the hot dog buns. This keeps the recipe low carb.
