(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and this Slow Cooker Sausage and Peppers from Everyday Maven sounds so delicious for a slow cooker meal that's Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, and even Paleo if you use the right sausage!)

Just about any recipe that combines sausage and peppers is going to be a flavor combination I'll enjoy.  In this easy Slow Cooker Sausage and Peppers from Everyday Maven, onions and peppers are thinly sliced with food processor and then layered into the slow cooker with sausage tucked in the middle.  I think that's a brilliant way to cook this so the sausage flavor gets infused into the vegetables as they cook together.  You can make this with pork, chicken, or turkey sausage and if you'd like to keep it low-carb serve over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles as Alyssa suggests.

Ingredients for this recipe:
  • Garlic
  • onions
  • bell peppers
  • salt
  • Italian seasoning
  • dried oregano
  • red pepper flakes
  • crushed tomatoes
  • water
  • bay leaf
  • uncooked Italian sausage links
  • Italian parsley for serving (optional).
