Start by slicing the Red Chili Pepper (1). Yellow Bell Pepper (1), Cubanelle Pepper (1) and Green Bell Pepper (1).
Thinly slice the Sweet Onion (2).
In a pan over high heat, add the Olive Oil (4 tablespoon). Once the oil begins to shimmer add all the peppers into the pan. Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Once the peppers have started to cook down, lower the heat and add the sliced onions. Continue to cook for 6-7 minutes over medium-high heat.
Slice the Mild Italian Sausage Links (6) into 1/2 inch pieces.
Move the peppers and onions to the side and add the sausage pieces into the pan. As you lay them down cover them with the peppers and onions- we want to get a nice sear on the sausage pieces.
Next add the Balsamic Vinegar (4 tablespoon) and mix together. Proceed to add the Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup) to help cut the acidity from the tomatoes. If there is too much fat/oil in the pan, feel free to spoon it out. Following that add the Canned Crushed Tomatoes (15 ounce) and Tomato Paste (1 tablespoon) and mix together.
Add the Fresh Basil (4 tablespoon) Dried Oregano (1/2 teaspoon), and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 teaspoon). Mix together, lower the heat to low and place the lid on. Continue to cook with the lid on for 10 minutes.
Before serving season with Salt (1/2 teaspoon) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 teaspoon). Stir together and serve with your choice of pasta if desired. Enjoy!
