  • 1 lb. Italian sausage squeezed into "meatballs" and cooked
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 onion chopped or sliced
  • 2 clove garlic minced
  • 1-2 tsp. cajun seasoning
  • 14 oz. diced tomatoes canned
  • 1 large (gallon) freezer bag or reusable silicone bag


Assembly Instructions:

  • Fry the sausage slices in a frying pan over medium-high heat until lightly browned on both sides. Alternately, you can place the raw sausage "meatballs" in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven.
  • Blot the cooked sausage slices on a paper towel to remove some of the grease.
  • Place the cooked sausage in a large resealable freezer bag. Add the sliced peppers, onion, minced garlic, cajun seasoning, and the can of diced tomatoes.
  • Remove the excess air from the bag, seal and freeze.

Cooking Instructions:

  • Thaw. Cook in a skillet over medium-high heat until heated through. Serve over rice or in a wrap.
