Sausage & Peppers

I  made authentic sausage and peppers for the first time tonight.Not the best I’ve ever had, but really tasty. I used more tomato than appears below (750ml box of Pomi) and it was a bit much. The peppers also should have been seared a bit more to simulate grilling, make sure the heat is high. And turn the sausages frequently to brown evenly on all sides.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb sweet italian sausage
  • 1 lb hot italian sausage
  • 500 ml Pomi chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • oregano
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. brown sausages in large skillet in 1 TB of olive oil over medium heat, until browned on all sides but not cooked through
  2. Thinly slice onions and cut peppers into strips.
  3. Remove sausage from pan and drain off excess grease if necessary, reserve 1 TB and increase heat to high
  4. saute onions until starting to wilt, then add peppers and cook quickly until slightly soft. 
  5. Add garlic and cook for a minute.
  6. Deglaze pan with wine.
  7. Add 1 TB tomato paste, chopped tomatoes, and spices. Stir well and adjust seasonings.
  8. Add sausages back to pan, cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for 15 minutes.
  9. Stir and cook 5 more minutes uncovered if necessary.
  10. Slice each sausage into 4 pieces, 1 mild and 1 hot per serving
  11. Pile onto Italian rolls or Greek pita
