I had a bunch of eggs in the fridge and was looking for a recipe to use some of them up. I recently rediscovered the blog Closet Cooking and was busy bookmarking tons of recipes. This one was perfect since I already had sausage in the freezer. Of course, I roasted my own red pepper for this recipe. You do NOT need to roast your own pepper. Since the pepper is mixed in with the a lot of other ingredients I felt that the effort was unnecessary. However, this dish is totally worth making! It's really tasty and besides me roasting the pepper, was quick and easy too! We all enjoyed this.
