  • 1 lb sweet Italian sausage
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes halved
  • 12 banana peppers cleaned of seeds and ribs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • ½ pound pasta cooked
  • grated cheese optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray your baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Stuff your banana peppers with the sausage. If the sausage is in casings, take them off to stuff the peppers. If you have left over sausage, shape into small meatball bites.
  4. Slice the banana peppers in a few pieces and make sure the sausage is in every piece if possible.
  5. Add your stuffed peppers, excess sausage, tomatoes, spices and olive oil to your baking dish and toss so that everything is mixed well.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until the sausage is full cooked.
  7. In the meantime cook your pasta.
  8. Once the peppers are baked, add to your cooked pasta and serve with grated cheese if you wish.
  9. Also delicious over zucchini noodles if you are gluten free or Paleo.
