Sausage, Peppers, and Onion

We saw Giada on tv making this dish one Saturday morning and knew what we'd be having for lunch. Really tasty and satisfying.

Sausage, Peppers, and Onions
Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage
2 red bell peppers, sliced
2 yellow onions, sliced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup Marsala wine
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
4 to 6 fresh Italian sandwich rolls, optional

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.

I saw that episode! Now I must try this, too. YUM!

Goodness that looks tasty. And simple. And given that C would write sonnets to sausage if I let him, I'm pretty sure he'll love it.


looks good, I bookmarked it for when I go back to Virginia.

That would be good on a Portuguese roll!

That looks DEEELISH. I do a basic peppers and onions, toss one sliced red bell pepper and one sliced sweet onion with a dash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Saute until caramelized and turn the heat down and simmer over a low flame for about an hour. Melts in your mouth and rocks your world.

Ahhhh! I want to reach into my monitor and take some! I added this to memories. Thank you.

Mmmmm Giada...I mean mmmm Sausage, Peppers, and Onion.


ah, i saw that episode too. yum!

That sounds delish...thinking of trying it tomorrow for dinner. Hope you and Mike are as well as you can be. gracehatter
