Calories: 117 kcal
5 to 6
large yellow onions
halved and thinly sliced
green bell peppers
halved from top to bottom, cleaned and thinly sliced
crushed red pepper flakes
can unsalted crushed tomatoes
1 3/4 to 2
uncooked Italian Sausage Links
Mild or Spicy

Finely chop garlic. I used my food processor with the chopping blade to save time.
If you are using a food processor, swap the chopping blade for the slicing disc [img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/IMG_0529-300x400.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="400" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-11882"] Peel onions and halve. Place the onion halves cut side down in the food processor and slice. Alternately, thinly slice by hand. Remove the chopped garlic and sliced onion to the slow cooker.[img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/IMG_0528-533x400.jpg" alt="" width="533" height="400" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-11881"]
Slice bell peppers in half from top to bottom. Remove the ribs and any seeds.[img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/IMG_0530-533x400.jpg" alt="" width="533" height="400" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-11883"][img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/IMG_0531-533x400.jpg" alt="" width="533" height="400" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-11884"]
Proceed to thinly slice or use the food processor to slice exactly like the onions.[img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/IMG_0532-300x400.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="400" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-11885"]
Add the sliced bell peppers to the slow cooker along with the salt, Italian Seasoning, dried oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, 1/4 cup cold water and can of crushed tomatoes. Toss until well coated and liquid is evenly distributed.

Remove about half of the peppers and onion mixture to a bowl. Bury the uncooked sausages in the middle and return the peppers and onions back to the slow cooker to cover the sausage. Add the bay leaf. Cover, set to low and cook for 6 hours. The onions and peppers will give off a lot of water as they cook which will make the sauce liquid and spoon-able so don't stress that there isn't enough liquid. Top with some chopped parsley, serve hot and Enjoy!
