Sausage and Peppers Omelet with Ragú

alt="Sausage and Peppers Omelet"

My husband is the sweetest, dearest man, and he NEVER wants anything for himself. I know that anything I buy for him for Father’s Day, he will most likely end up taking back. He is just not a gift guy. What he values more than anything else is a day off spent with the family. And he won’t ever turn down a little good food either! So when Ragú contacted me to come up with a Father’s Day brunch that was a twist on their Sausage and Peppers by blending it with a traditional brunch dish, I knew exactly the kind of recipe my guy would love – a Sausage and Peppers Omelet! I know this hearty dish will pass my husband’s approval, and I bet it will go over well at your house, too.

3 eggs
1/4 orange bell pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 link sweet Italian sausage, casing removed
2 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce (Yes, I really use this brand because it has a delicious taste our whole family loves.)
several fresh basil leaves

There is not a dish in this world that isn’t made better by using fresh ingredients, and our Sausage and Peppers Omelet is no exception. If you’ve never used fresh herbs, by all means plant a few in your back yard. Basil, cilantro, rosemary, dill, and parsley are especially easy to grow. And if you’ve never used fresh mozzarella, here’s what you’re looking for:

Start by browning and crumbling sweet Italian sausage in skillet over medium heat. When cooked thoroughly, remove to paper towel to drain. Reserve just a little of the grease in the pan.

Saute diced onions and peppers in skillet with a little of the sausage grease. Salt and pepper well. When veggies are just beginning to soften, add sausage back to pan. Mix it together well.

Scramble eggs in a bowl and pour over top of sausage mixture. Cover and reduce heat to medium low. Allow to cook for around 4-5 minutes or until eggs are no longer runny. Fold in half and put on plate.

Place mozzarella slices on top of omelet. Drizzle Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce over dish. Finish with basil on top. Serve right away.
