Sausage and Peppers

Sausage and Peppers

Sounds decadent doesn’t it? So one night I was going to make my Nane’s pasta with clam sauce, but I only had salmon. Then someone came over with a bottle of champagne. I thought, “mmm…can I find a recipe that fits all three?” The answer was, “with a little combination-yes”. So here’s the recipe, taken from a HG-TV recipe, a Food Network Recipe and my Nane’s recipe.

  • 4-6
  • 15 minutes
  • 30 minutes



  • 2 lbs sweet Italian sausage
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 large bell peppers (your choice of colors)
  • 1 small Spanish onion
  • 4 cups Marinara sauce
  • 1 cup water


Follow This Recipe

  1. Cut the sausages into 2 inch pieces.
  2. Pan fry the sausage with the oil on medium heat until sausage is cooked. Drain oil from the pan.
  3. Add peppers and onions and continute to sauté for a few minutes stirring constantly.
  4. At this point, add marinara sauce and water.
  5. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes.


The thing about this recipe is it’s easy to customize. We like it spicy so I always throw in some crushed red pepper flakes and serve either with pasta or a really good french bread. You can also go with sweeter and add fresh basil leaves and use a tomato vodka sauce with fresh tomatoes diced and added in. This way is good with pasta, I like a Manicotti or a Gemelli.
