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!
