  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a large frying pan, brown the sausages on all sides over medium-high heat. Remove from the pan, allow to cool slightly, and then slice into 2-inch pieces.
  2. Add the butter to the pan and sauté the yellow onion, red onion, and garlic for about 3 minutes. Add the red and green bell pepper, and season the mixture with basil, oregano and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Pour in the wine and cook until the onions are tender.
  4. Put the sausages into the pan and mix with the vegetables. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Serve hot with fresh bread or over pasta with marinara sauce.
