What’s Cooking: Sausage, onions and peppers

Sausage, onions and peppers is a simple rustic Italian-American dish that we love in our home. Although it can be served on its own, or even on a bun, we pair this up with some bucatini, a pasta that is a little bigger in diameter than traditional spaghetti.

The recipe is quick to prep and quick to cook.


One large white onion
Three bell peppers (green, red and yellow)
Four Italian Sausage
Olive Oil
White or red wine
One clove garlic diced


1/ Brown four Italian sausage on all four sides

2/ Remove to a plate and slice open

3/ Leave sausage grease in the pan unless excessive.

If there is too much grease, take away some with a paper towel.

4/ Sautee onions in grease, adding garlic, oregano and basil

5/ Add some white or red wine to deglaze the pan.

6/ Add peppers and cook for about five minutes.

7/ Add sausage to pan, cover pan with the lid and simmer on low to medium heat for 30 minutes.

Time can vary as it is important that the sausage is cooked while the peppers retain some crispness.

8/ Cook some pasta

9/ Serve sausage, onions and peppers over pasta.

10/ Add some balsamic vinegar for added flavour.
