Steamy boiling action

This was surprisingly delicious. I didn’t have great expectations for a flavorful dish thinking the peppers & onions would just be a side note to the sausage, but they were really flavorful due to the wine and sausage bits. The sourdough roll was a great addition instead of using a simple white/wheat roll, it added some tartness to a sweet dish. Make this with your favorite green veggie!

Sear sausage in olive oil on high for ~5 minutes, turning every minute or so. Remove sausage links and set aside, leaving the hot oil. Add bell peppers, onion & garlic to pan and sauté ~5 minutes. Once the veggies are browned a bit (not just softened), add all spices, red wine, canned tomatoes and sausages back to pan in that order. Stir for good measure. Boil together for 5-10 minutes until red wine has almost all evaporated. If you decided to make your own (recipe idea!) or are using uncooked sausages, cook for 15-20 minutes instead. If you want toasty buns (who doesn’t?!), slather the sourdough rolls with butter and toss in a toaster oven for 5-10 minutes to get a nice warm toasty bun. Now it’s time to get your plate ready! Put a toasty bun on the plate, place the sausage on a bed of peppers & onions and top with another scoop.

Great color, great flavor, great meal

4 Pre-Cooked Sausage Links
3 Different colored Bell Peppers, sliced to 1/4″ strips
1/2 small Yellow Onion, sliced
4 cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
1/3 cup Red Table Wine
1 8oz can crushed (or diced) tomatoes
4 Sourdough Rolls
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Sprinkles of Spices (Oregano, Crushed Red Pepper, Salt & Pepper)

Makes 4 Rolls. 20 minutes. ~$3/roll. Needs a side of green veggies, pretty healthy with some fat from the sausage. Go light on the olive oil and omit the butter for a healthier option!
