Red, yellow and orange bell peppers were chosen over green in this recipe. They are sweeter, have less aftertaste and provide a better nutrition profile than the green ones in my opinion. 9 grams carbs - 2 grams fiber = 7 net carbs per servingSWAP NOTE:You can use a higher fat Italian sausage, just omit to olive oil and fry the sausage and peppers in the rendered fat. Drain excess fat after pan-frying.
