Here’s another dinner that easy to throw together on a hectic day. Once again, it uses an ingredient that I normally stay away from; purchased spaghetti sauce, but this time of year I’m grateful for its convenience. I’d even have used frozen bell peppers if I’d thought of it.

Solar Sausage Sandwich

(adapted for the Sun Oven from Crock-Pot Best Loved Slow Cooker Recipes)


4 to 6 Italian sausages

1 jar (26-ounces) tomato spaghetti sauce

1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced

2 red bell peppers, seeded and thinly sliced

1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed


Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

Place the sausages in a large pot. Cover with the onion and peppers. Mix the sugar into the sauce and pour it over the contents in the pot. Cover and cook in the Sun Oven until the vegetables are soft and the sausages are fully cooked, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve with Italian rolls.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
