Start by slicing the
Red Chili Pepper (1)
Yellow Bell Pepper (1)
Cubanelle Pepper (1)
Green Bell Pepper (1)
Thinly slice the
Sweet Onions (2)
In a pan over high heat, add the
Olive Oil (1/4 cup)
. 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.
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 (1/4 cup)
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 (1 3/4 cups)
Tomato Paste (1 Tbsp)
and mix together.
Fresh Basil (1/4 cup)
Dried Oregano (1/2 tsp)
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp)
. 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 tsp)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp)
. Stir together and serve with your choice of pasta if desired. Enjoy!
