Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 lb milk Italian sausage links, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 can (15-oz) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup your favorite pasta sauce
1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 small onion, halved and sliced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Hot cooked rice for serving
Chopped fresh basil for garnish, optional

Brown the sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; drain and discard fat.

Place the sausage, beans, pasta sauce, bell pepper, onion, salt and pepper into a slow cooker. Cover and cook 4 to 6 hours on low.

Serve with hot cooked rice and garnish with chopped basil, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings
