How to Make Sausage & Peppers
- Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pan that has a lid. When the oil is hot, add the sausages and brown them.You want a gentle browning, not a sear. Cook for several minutes, turning them occasionally so they brown on all sides. When the sausages are browned, remove from the pan and set aside.
Increase the heat to high and add the onions and peppers. Toss so they get coated with the oil in the pan stirring every so often. You want some blackening. Once the onions and peppers soften, sprinkle some salt on them. Once you get some searing on the onions and peppers, add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
Add the red wine or broth,scrape the bottom of the pan to release all the browned and blackened bits. Let the wine cook down by half.
Add the tomatoes, oregano and red pepper flakes (if using) and stir well to combine. Add the sausages back in. Bring to a simmer then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer until the peppers are soft the sausages are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
Serve over soft polenta,in a bun or over pasta.
