  • servings: 4
Photography: LISA HUBBARD

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound hot Italian sausage
  • 1 medium yellow onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick half-moons
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
  • 1 twenty-eight-ounce can whole tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Remove casings from sausage; crumble into 1-inch pieces. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the sausage; cook, stirring often, until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove the sausage from the saute pan with a slotted spoon; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan. Return to medium heat; add the onion. Saute the onion until it is just beginning to brown and soften, about 5 minutes. Add the peppers; continue to cook for 10 minutes more.

  3. Step 3

    Add salt and pepper. Add tomatoes; bring to a boil, and then lower to a simmer until vegetables are tender and the sauce has reduced and thickened slightly, about 12 minutes more.

  4. Step 4

    Return sausage to pan; cook just enough to heat through. Stir in parsley; adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
