My sister was hosting a birthday party and asked me to bring sausage and peppers. I'd never made them before, so I altered a braised pepper recipe. Now family members request this dish often. —Jeanne Corsi, Arnold, Pennsylvania

  • 4 medium green peppers, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced and quartered

  • 3 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 6 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
