We’re big Celtics fans at this half of WCWWC. We’ve also been traveling and running around like crazy lately and haven’t been able to enjoy a nice meal at home in a while. I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time to cook, but I wanted to make a comforting meal that would be perfect for watching game 2 on our couch.  When I was chatting with my mom on the phone this afternoon, she mentioned that she was making sausages with peppers and onions for her and my dad. Comforting? Check. Suitable for watching basketball? Check. Quick and easy? Check. I had a plan.

I remembered reading a recipe for sausages with peppers and onions on Peanut Butter Fingers and decided to use Julie’s technique.  This was really great because it didn’t require a lot of hands on time and I was able to do things like put the groceries away and unpack as dinner was cooking.

I was excited to go watch the game so the pictures leave something to be desired 😦


  • 2 green peppers sliced into long, thin pieces
  • 1 Vidalia onion sliced into long, thin pieces
  • 6-10 mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 hot Italian sausages cut into bite-sized pieces (I used chicken sausage because I’m not a big pork fan, but either would work)
  • 2 sweet Italian sausages cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste


Combine the veggies and sausage pieces in a casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 minutes. Doesn’t get much easier than that, does it?

I was going to eat the sausages and veggies on their own, but when I saw that Andrew was making his into a sandwich I got jealous. I toasted a couple of pieces of millet and flax bread, spread on some Bone Suckin’ mustard, and added a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. We ate our sandwiches with a side of Trader Joe’s baked beans.

Make sure the check back for game 3. Word on the street is that Lizzie has another game time classic to share.

What is your favorite food to eat while watching sports?
