An Easy Classic

August 6, 2010

Sausage and Peppers is a classic sandwich for Italians. Besides the cheesesteak, Sausage and Peppers is one of those street foods that is easy to make and can not only be served as a sandwich but over rice or by itself. When I make this dish, I only buy my sausage from Cannuli Sausage in South Philadelphia. Funny thing is, I made this on Wednesday and when I saw my mom last night that’s what she made for dinner too. Have a good weekend!


1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound sweet Italian or hot sausage
2 red bell peppers, sliced
2 yellow onions, sliced
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup white wine
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
4 to 6 fresh Italian sandwich rolls, optional

Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausages and cook until brown on both sides, about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain. Keeping the pan over medium heat, add the peppers, onions, salt, and pepper and cook until golden brown and the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the oregano, wine, basil, and garlic and cook 2 more minutes.

    This must be pork week. I made pork chops on Wednesday night!! Tonight we’re having pork roast sandwiches with homemade hot peppers from Uncle Lenny’s garden, and of course, delicious home grown tomato salad from guess where?

    See you on the beach.
