Mom's Spiralized Peppers, Onions, and Potatoes with Sausage

On Super Bowl Sunday, I posted this photo on Instagram of a spiralized dish that my mother brought to eat during the game.

I must have receive a hundred messages on Instagram and Snapchat about that dish, so I called my mother first thing Monday morning and had her walk me through the recipe.

Now, it’s on the blog! And because I had about three servings, let me tell you: MAKE THIS.

I had actually never baked sausage in the oven before, but now, I don’t know how else I’ll ever cook it (aside from crumbling for a lasagna like this one.) The sausage cooks evenly (just shake the pan a couple of times while it cooks) and voila – crisp on the outside, perfectly cooked on the inside.

I used sweet Italian fennel sausage in this recipe, but you could omit the red pepper flakes and use spicy sausage. OR, do a combo – sweet and spicy sausage. And if you’re not a meat-eater, just toss in some chickpeas or quinoa, because the flavor from the potatoes, peppers, onions, basil, and oregano are all you need!

This dish saves well, too – you can even freeze it, it will all defrost.

On a side note, I’m asked at least once a day where my “big pan from your cooking snaps” is from. You can find out more about the pan here. I swear by it – NOTHING sticks to it and it holds SO much (like this deliciousness I’m sharing today.)

So thanks to you Mom, for sharing your recipe with everyone – I know you read my blog everyday, so I’m sure you’ll love this post the most!

Mom’s Spiralized Peppers, Onions, and Potatoes with Sausage

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time35 mins
Total Time45 mins


  • 4 sweet Italian sausage links or sausage of choice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 red bell peppers Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1 large white or red onion Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 2 large russet potatoes Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes or more, if you like spice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the sausage in a baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes or until sausage is browned and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add in the peppers, onions, and potatoes. Season with red pepper flakes, oregano, basil, and garlic. Season generously with salt and pepper and toss well to combine thoroughly.
  • Cook the mixture until potatoes are cooked through, about 15 minutes. If you want to speed up the process, cover the skillet with a lid to let the mixture steam.
  • When the veggies and sausage are done, slice the sausage and add to the veggie mixture and toss to combine OR simply serve the sliced sausage alongside the veggie mixture.
  • Serve.

Love this!! ?
Gosh that looks great! So simple and comforting! I will be making this with vegan sausage or roasted chickpeas :)
Ali Maffucci says:
Yum!! Love the roasted chickpeas idea.
Cheryl says:
I use the Anolon pans but haven't tried the bronze one. Macy's often has a sale on these or a coupon you can use for them .
Karen says:
Please thank Mom for this recipe! I'll be making it for my sweetie on Valentine's Day. It's just his thing. (Your own Sausage and Peppers recipe is one of his favorites.)
Carol says:
My Mom always made her sausage and peppers with potatoes as do I. Her recipe was very similar to this one (nothing was spiralized however). She sometimes added a splash of balsamic or red wine in her recipe and then put it in the oven to finish. Thanks for sharing.
Pam says:
Mom's chicken with root vegetables is a favorite of mine, I'm sure this will be just as delicious. :)
Heidy says:
This sounds so very tasty. I will use rutabaga instead of potatoes to keep it lower carb since I enjoyed your rutabaga spaghetti recipe so much. Thanks so much to you and your mom for the recipe!
Kendra says:
Love this! What sausage did you use to calculate the Weight Watchers Smart Points? I'm struggling to get it down to 6 points. Thanks for all you do! Love your recipes and the spiralizer!
Pamela says:
Made this yesterday and it was delicious. Sprinkled some grated cheese on the top and that finished it off beautifully!
Claire Bibbee says:
I received my new red inspiralizer from HSN yesterday (super excited, and it took me no time to through away my former-not-so-good-spiralizer). So last night I made this dish and it was a HUGE hit, I mean HUGE. My boys are 14 and 10 and they devoured it, I actually did not make enough and did not have leftovers for my lunch today :( They are currently both going through your cookbooks and flagging what we need to have for lunch, dinner, snacks, this weekend :)
Megan says:
Hello, this looks delicious! :) Is your smartpoints calculation based on 4 servings or 6 servings?
Lynne says:
I tried this recipe and it was delicious! I didn't have red peppers, so I used green, and I added spiralized sweet was very tasty and I used turkey polish kielbasa. Its a keeper
Elizabeth King says:
Hi, Made this for dinner last evening & it was delicious. Have enough leftover for my dinner this evening. Will make it again.
Michelle says:
Please thank your Mama - this recipe is easy & delicious! It made so much, that I added eggs and cheddar cheese to it, and turned the leftovers into a frittata! :)
JEE says:
Made this for dinner tonight! YUM! You weren't kidding about the clean up after spiralizing bell peppers! I substituted one potato for a sweet potato because I didn't have enough (might have liked it better this way?). I also ended up putting the potatoes, onions, and peppers in the oven for a bit because I didn't love how liquidy they were getting in the pan. Best way to cook sausage in the casings ever!
M says:
Made this for dinner tonight, and everyone loved it. Thanks!
Norfolk Melanie says:
Made this tonight for dinner. Seemed like a perfect meal for a cold night. Wasn't prepared for how simply delicious it was! So good, and so simple to make. Had to make myself stop eating! Thanks for such an amazing recipe! Will be making this one again and again
Meaghan says:
That's awesome to hear. You're so welcome. We're glad you enjoyed the dish.
Carol says:
This looks like comfort food for sure! I'll use turnip noodles, my new favorite, thanks to you,
Meaghan says:
Oh, that would be fabulous!
Hannah B says:
Do you know what size your blades are? My spiralizer goes by mm not letters so I am uncertain what size to use. Thanks!

I figured it out! Love it can't wait to make it

we’re flying back to new jersey on friday and already starting to miss it here in florida ☀️ the weather’s nice, but I’ll most miss all the time spent with our family together 🙏🏼 for the past (almost) 2 years, we’ve spent a lot of time in florida with my family and that’s been the silver lining of the pandemic 🙏🏼 right now, my grandmother is here and that time is extra special. I don’t think I’d ever have the chance to be with her for this amount of time otherwise, and I am so, so grateful for it 👵🏼💓 photos by @karlakorn 📸 ...
