Sausage and Peppers

As a native German, one of my favorite things to eat is sausage. Luckily I landed in New York some 30 years ago, so my sausage intake has taken on many international flavors with all the different cuisines here.  Of course you just have to love the Italian Sausage, and the way the Italians have taught us how to prepare this yummy protein, is definitely great for a family dinner! As usual i kept the recipe short and simple…


What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 -2 pounds Italian sweet sausage
  • 2 green peppers, sliced
  • 2 red peppers, sliced
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup Marsala wine
  • 1 (15oz can) diced tomatoes

Heat the oil in a large skillet and cook the sausages on both sides for about 8 – 10 minutes, until they are brown. Set aside on a paper towel. In the same skillet add the peppers, onions, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add oregano, basil and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.

Add tomato paste and stir. Add Marsala wine and tomatoes, stir and bring to a simmer. Cut the sausages into bite size pieces, and add them back into the skillet. Stir to combine and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve with Italian rolls!

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
