Italian Sausage Rolls with Peppers and Onions

September 2, 2010

I recently went to a plant sale at Mounts Botanical Garden here in West Palm Beach and after hours of enjoying all the different plants and buying a few some food was definitely in order, like immediately.  My friend was quick to find a food stand with sausages and we found a nice picnic table by the water and in the shade.  I could only eat one so of course I had to get the ingredients, come home and make my own the next day.  I think they are always better at home since you can adjust the seasonings to your liking, but they are always delicious wherever you get them.

  • 4 Bell Peppers (washed, cored and cut into strips) (any or all colors)
