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

Pinch of dried oregano

Salt and freshly ground pepper


  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.
