Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 2 green bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 4 fresh, hot Italian sausages
  • 4 fresh, sweet Italian sausages
  • 1 cup milled or crushed canned Italian plum tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups dry red wine
  • 1 pinch of dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large skillet with a lid, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onion, and peppers, and cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the sausages, and cook about 4 minutes more, until sausages begin to brown. Add the tomatoes, wine, oregano, and a large pinch of salt. Cover, bring to a simmer, and simmer gently about 25 minutes, until the peppers are very soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

    way too much liquid. next time i'd reduce wine to 3/4 cup. as written, i had to remove the lid to reduce the sauce down, otherwise way too watery. also, sausages are overcooked after 25 minutes. next time, i'd remove them after 15 minutes.

    Tasted very good. I would reduce the wine to 1/2 cut, 1-1/2 cups of wine. The wine also turned my sausage blue, and it was not very attractive. I used a Cabernet wine so next time I'll try Chianti and use less of it.
