  • 3 bell peppers Orange, Yellow, and Red
  • 5 Italian sausage links about 1.5-2 pounds
  • ¼ head Cabbage
  • 20oz jar Marinara sauce
  • 5 Cheese sticks Mozzarella


  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • In a 8x10 glass dish, place cabbage leaves that have been washed and patted dry
  • Using kitchen scissors, cut the sausage down the side. Do not remove the casing. Put a mozzarella stick inside the sausage and press it back into its shape. Put it casing side down in an 8 x 10-inch baking pan. Repeat with the remaining sausage.
  • Slice up the bell peppers removing the seeds and then place them on top.
  • Pour the marinara sauce over the sausage and peppers.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes until the sausage is 160 when checked with a meat thermometer.


Any type of sausage with a casing will work. Turkey, Pork, Chicken, whichever you prefer is fine. It just needs the casing to hold it together.
