How to make Italian sausage and peppers in the Pressure Cooker

This was another quick, tasty, and somewhat healthy recipe. Today, we are sharing how to make Italian sausage and Peppers in the  Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi- Pressure cooker. This meal is a great summer feeling food that the entire family will enjoy. You will have plenty of sauce leftover that you can either freeze or save for the next day and make some pasta. There, we just planned dinner for two nights.  We used Italian sweet chicken sausage in lieu of pork. Of course, you can improvise any sausage to your liking.

This dish reminds me of fair food at it’s finest right from the comforts of your own home. The sauce will make enough for two meals. ENJOY.

  • Turn on saute option and let heat up in just under a minute.
  • Saute your onions, peppers and garlic until a light golden brown.

    My Grandma used to make Italian sausage, and it was so good when it was on a fresh bun.
