Some things just work together perfectly, like the delicious blend of sausage and peppers in this dish. With savory sausages coupled with fresh and juicy peppers, you’ll be thanking yourself for finding a dish that’s simple, delicious, and always a hit! Our favorite part? The way the flavors melt together.

While the sausage and peppers are an amazing dish on their own, it also pairs great with more of our Italian dishes such as our authentic homemade Chicken Parmesan, or for our lasagna lovers, our Ravioli Lasagna.

SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS INGREDIENTS

sausage and peppers raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 4 Italian sausage links (mild, medium, or hot)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ½ cup marsala wine 
  • 1 cup roasted red bell peppers, jarred
  • 1 cup crushed, canned tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, 1 teaspoon dried

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Wine: Not looking to put wine in the dish? You can easily substitute chicken broth for the marsala wine.

Oregano: Have no oregano, but plenty of thyme on your hands? Use it instead. It’s best to begin your substitution with half the specified amount and then make adjustments to fit your tastes.

Potatoes: An excellent addition to this dish is potatoes. Cut them to the same size as the sausages and add a few minutes to the cook time, making sure to turn them once or twice throughout to ensure they cook thoroughly.

HOW TO MAKE THIS SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS RECIPE

STEP ONE: In a 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Brown sausage links, turning occasionally to ensure they do not burn. Brown until cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove sausage links to a plate and keep warm.

STEP THREE: Add minced garlic to the pan and saute 1 to 2 minutes more.

PRO TIP: If your pan seems too hot at this point, allow it to cool before adding the garlic. Garlic will easily burn in a pan that’s too hot.

STEP FOUR: Add wine to skillet and scrape browned bits from the pan to deglaze. Bring to a simmer and reduce wine by about half, should take approximately 2 to 3 minutes. 

STEP FIVE: Add roasted bell peppers, crushed tomatoes, and oregano to the skillet.

STEP SEVEN: Simmer over medium until everything is warmed and sausage is cooked completely if it was not thoroughly cooked in step one.

STEP EIGHT: Serve immediately.

PRO TIP: This dish is the perfect topping over a base of rice or spaghetti. You can even add spaghetti sauce to bring it all together.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. 

IN THE FREEZER: Leftovers can be frozen in an airtight container for 1 month, but your veggies may end up a bit mushier than you’d like when reheating.
