How to Make Sausage and Peppers


  1. Use a large deep stock pot and fill to 1/2full with water bring to a slow boil. Add sausages and cook for about 20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked,no pink in the center. In another sauce pan cook your Marinara and spices on med/low. While that's cooking, slice peppers and onions into 1/4" long slices and remove the seeds.Add oil to a large deep pan ( I use my enamel cast oven/ it needs to be a good sized pan) Heat oil on medium.Remove sausages from stock pot drain the water off, add to pan with oil. Add onions, peppers, and cook on medium until sausage browns and peppers/onions soften a bit.I like to raise my heat just enough to give them a slight burnt look. But, don't burn it!! Add the marinara sauce and toss together.Cook for another 3-5 minutes till all flavors mingle a little. Take off the stove and top with cheese.
  2. Serve over favorite pasta or slice open a large french baguette and top with Mozzarella or Provolone Cheese slices add peppers and sausages and ENJOY!!!
