Sausage, Peppers and Onions

Total Time:
55 min
15 min
40 min

4 to 6 servings


Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausages and cook until brown on both sides, about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain.

Keeping the pan over medium heat, add the peppers, onions, salt, and pepper and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the oregano, basil, and garlic and cook 2 more minutes.

Add the tomato paste and stir. Add the Marsala wine, tomatoes, and chili flakes, if using. Stir to combine, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release all the browned bits. Bring to a simmer.

Cut the sausages into 4 to 6 pieces each, about 1-inch cubes. Add the sausage back to the pan and stir to combine. Cook until the sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes.

Serve in bowls. Or, if serving as a sandwich, split the rolls in half lengthwise. Hollow out the bread from the bottom side of each roll, being careful not to puncture the crust. Fill the bottom half of the roll with sausage mixture. Top and serve sandwiches immediately.

This was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Now, I used Vegan Italian Sausage and chik'n broth instead of the wine. I put some fresh mozzarella on top and let it melt. Served with some crusty bread and voila...Thanks Giada, you are the best<br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not have marsala wine so i used beef broth. it tasted perfect. I only recommend using a strong type of bread because I used hoagie bread and it fell apart as we were eating it. Absolutely delicious recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very good but personally I thought the amt of salt and black pepper was WAY too much. I will make this again but I will half both of them next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Flavors are outstanding, easy, quick, and utterly delicious every time. Winner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i made it for hubby and he would rather the peppers not be so soft. He likes a little bite. So, i think the 20 minute cook time is really a bit too long if you dont want soggy veggies. I personally did not taste it as I m not a fan of italian sausage. But hubby says give it 4 stars so thats what it gets :) item not reviewed by moderator and published

My husband loved this recipe. I served it over white rice. He said it was very flavorful. His only negative comment was that it could have done with one less onion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
easy, delicious and you can use what is on hand. I had hot sausage which made the dish extra spicy. I did not have marsala or tomato paste/diced tomatoes but used sherry/white whine and a little tomato sauce and that did the trick. Definitely will make a again. Thank you!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was worried about the amount of salt and pepper recipe suggested to add, also the amount of Marsala wine. but I followed the recipe and WoWza this dish is fabulous. The sauce cooks down over that 20 minute period of time to a nice consistency. I also pulled out the centers of my hoggie rolls like Giada did. It helps hold more of the sausage and peppers in place while you eat instead of falling out everywhere. Thnx Giada this is a definite keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
