Spectacular Sausage and Peppers



  • 3 links sausage (of your choice)
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 12 green/red peppers (your choice)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh chopped basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 white wine
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Prep the sausages by piercing them with a fork 2 or 3 times. This will prevent the casing from splitting and will allow some juices to flavor the pan
  2. Chop the onion in thin strips, as well as the peppers
  3. Add a Tablespoon (or two) of oil in a large skillet and add the sausages
  4. Brown them on all sides and remove them to a plate (they will still be raw in the middle)
  5. Turn the heat on very low and add the onions. You will want to caramelize them so cook them very slowly over low heat, about 5-8 minutes
  6. Meanwhile, cut the sausages into bite size slices, retaining the juice
  7. Add your peppers and cook another minute to soften
  8. Add the garlic, spices, wine and sausages (with their juice) back to the pan
  9. Continue cooking until the sausages are cooked through (about 15-20 minutes)
