Slow Cooker Italian Sausages

Slow Cooker Italian Sausages and Peppers with Rotini
Makes 6 servings

Slow Cooker Liner
1 package (19.5 oz) turkey Italian sausages, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup finely chopped sweet onion
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped (2 teaspoons)
2 medium yellow bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 medium red bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 jar (26 oz) tomato pasta sauce
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 TBS. dried basil
1 tsp. dried mint
4 1/2 cups uncooked rotini pasta (12 oz)
6 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Place slow cooker liner inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly
against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.
Place all vegetables and sausages into the slow cooker. Add oregano, basil, and mint to the jar
of spaghetti saucc. Pour sauce over the contents of slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat
setting 6 to 8 hours.

Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Serve sausage mixture over pasta; sprinkle with
Parmesan cheese.

Tips :
Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and
throw away for easy clean up.

Garlic bread and a crisp green salad make great accompaniments to this hearty meal.

Sausage is available in several different flavors. Try using something other than turkey sausage
the next time you make this dish.
