1 med green pepper, sliced into thin strips
1/2 med onion, thinly sliced
1/4 C brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Refrigerate pineapple
chunks until ready to use.

Smoked Sausage with Vegetables
Cut Smoked Sausage into chunks and put in Bean Pot.
Add 1 cup water, quartered potatoes, carrots, quartered cabbage, and any vegetable you like.

Cover with the lid.
Bake 350°F for about 20-30 minutes, or until veggies are done.
*Bean Pot Sausage and Peppers
4 Sweet Italian Sausages, sliced
1 Jar of tomato sauce of your choice (or make your own sauce, like I do!)
2 Green Peppers, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Large Onion (I like Vidalia for the sweetness), thinly sliced.
Optional: Hoagie rolls (Italian bread) and Mozzarella cheese
In a saute pan, heat the olive oil. Add peppers and onions. Saute until onions and peppers are soft- do not brown.
In your bean pot, cover the base with tomato sauce. Place sausage slices into the bean pot, add onions and peppers. Top with remaining sauce, and stir together until all of the sausage and veggies are coated with sauce. Cover with lid. Place into a 350 oven for 25 minutes, or until sausage pieces are warmed through.
If you'd like, remove the bean pot from the oven and sprinkle desired amount of mozzarella cheese over the mixture. Replace lid to allow the cheese to melt for about five minutes.
 To serve, eat as is, or spoon into hoagie rolls.
