Sausage and Bell Pepper Sliders/Belkys

(WSVN) - Here’s a neat twist on a party favorite. These easy breezy sliders forgo the beef and put a spin on the Italian dish sausage and peppers.

1 1/4 pounds sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 orange bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 large shallot, sliced
1 clove garlic, sliced
8 ounces tomato sauce (store-bought or homemade)
8 slider buns or small potato rolls, split, lightly toasted if desired
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method of Preparation:
– Form the sausage into eight 1/2-inch-thick patties.

– Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage patties and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.

– Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the peppers, shallots and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

To Plate:
Place the patties onto the bottom buns, top with a scoop of the pepper mixture, then sprinkle with cilantro. Serve immediately.
