So, here goes...
Since no one in my family besides me likes spicy food, I used sweet Italian sausage. Fortunately I had a package in my freezer and didn't have to go out to get some. One package had six links in it so that was perfect. I put them on a sheet pan in the oven set to 375 degrees for about 20 minutes.
I used 4 green peppers because green was all I had. If you have red or orange or yellow, go for it! Anything will do. I also had a large yellow onion so I sliced them all up and put them in a pan with olive oil.
Let this mixture cook for a while but don't let it brown. (you can add some salt and pepper at this point) They'll start to get soft and change color. See how the peppers aren't bright green anymore and the onions aren't as white - they are more translucent now.
OK, I'm back. I also put in about a 1/4 cup white wine - again no measuring and also because that's what I had in my fridge. I would have preferred it to be red, and a bit more, but what can I do?!? That's what I had.
Mix it up and it should look like this...
Kitchen Basics. It's the one in the yellow box. I probably used about another 1/4 cup. Now cover it and let it continue to cook.
Along with the sausage and peppers, I was making pasta, so I allowed the s&p to cook while I waited for the water to boil for my pasta, and while the pasta cooked - so maybe that was another 20 minutes.
It was smelling good in here!!! Everything was done!!
Calm down, will you!! It's on it's way. The hubbs went out to get some while I was cooking.
I don't know if I can wait too long.
