  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 (4 ounce) links sweet Italian sausages (or sausage of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped (1 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh oregano, finely chopped (1 teaspoon dried oregano)
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh basil for garnish


  1. Place the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown on all sides (the sausages are not cooked all the way in this step they are just browned). Remove from skillet, let cool a bit (5 minutes) and slice into pieces of desired thickness.
  2. Add olive oil to the skillet. Stir in the onion and garlic, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add bell peppers and stir to combine. Season with thyme and oregano. Add white wine. Continue to cook and stir until peppers and onions are tender with a slight bite (about 5-6 minutes).
  3. Return sausage slices to the skillet with the onions and peppers. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until sausage is heated through.
