Sausage Cacciatore with Grandma's Peppers

There are many many uses for my grandmother's canned peppers in red sauce. (Recipe in recipe box) I like to share these creations to show just how versatile that delicious recipe can be.

For this recipe, I used mild Italian turkey sausage from our local butcher shop. If you prefer heat, you can use hot sausage, or sausage of your choice and it will work just as well.

For my daughter, I made GF rice pasta (which is delicious by the way!). The peppers are GF, so this recipe works well for all members of my family. Which helps tremendously!

Can also be made into Sausage Sloppy Joe's!

Grab your rolls, toss your romaine and get ready for a completely wonderful Italian meal! We used the mock pepper recipe and were just blown away by the yummy results. Enjoy! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Sausage Cacciatore with Grandma's Peppers

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare mock sauce & peppers if you do not have the canned peppers. The mock sauce isn't exactly the same, but will do in a pinch.

    NOTE: If preparing the mock sauce, you will omit the additional 14 oz. tomato puree.

    Place tomato puree, sauce, sugar, salt, cider vinegar, garlic & onion powder in saucepan. Bring to a simmer boil. Add cut up peppers and allow to cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, & cover until ready to use with sausage. (Covering will allow pepper flavoring to soak into sauce while preparing remainder of dish).
  • 2In a large skillet, add sausage, casings removed, and onions. Cook on low-medium heat until cooked through.
  • 3Add 2 pints of "Grandma Vinion's Canned peppers in Red Sauce" and tomato puree. If you are using mock sauce & peppers, add at this point. Add Italian seasoning.

    Cover, simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 4In the meantime, prepare fettuccine- al dente, according to package directions. Drain & toss with a bit of EVOO to prevent sticking.
  • 5To serve, we serve fettuccine, then top with preferred amount of Sausage Cacciatore & top with Ramona cheese.

    Goes well with prepared fresh vegetables, broccoli, squash etc.
  • 6Can also serve up as a "Sausage Cacciatore Sloppy Joe" on fresh Italian Sausage rolls.
    My husband Loves this dish, and if we have any left overs, he takes the Sausage Sloppy Joe's for lunch.
