16 (6-inch) wooden or metal skewers (see Note)
1 pound Italian rope sausage, cut into 16 pieces
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 8 strips
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 8 strips
1 cup spaghetti sauce, warmed
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Place a piece of sausage in the natural curve of a pepper strip. Push skewer gently through one end of the pepper then the sausage then the other end of the pepper, with the pepper surrounding the sausage on three sides. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining peppers and sausage.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the sausage is no longer pink. Serve with warm spaghetti sauce for dipping.
Note: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 to 20 minutes before skewering the food; this should keep the skewers from burning during cooking.
