  • 4 hot italian sausages
  • 4 sweet Italian sausages
  • 2 tsbp. olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 green peppers, washed, cleaned and cut into half-inch strips
  • 2 red peppers, washed, cleaned and cut into half-inch strips
  • 1 tbsp. oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, put through a garlic press
  • 1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste



Step 1

Put the sausages in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. This will remove some of the fat. Then drain off the water and dry the sausages on paper towels.

Heat the oil in a heavy saute pan, add the sausages and brown well on all sides. Then remove from the pan and put aside.

Add the onions and peppers and saute until lightly browned; add garlic, oregano, tomato sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Combine well and bring to a boil. Return the sausages to it and simmer for 25 minutes.

NOTE: Sausages freeze well, so you can make a double batch and freeze half.
