Recipe: Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

It's Monday, and nothing wraps up a Monday like a delicious dinner.  Tonight's dinner was so good, I'm still wishing there was more!  We're still enjoying the meat sampler we got a week ago from Brooker's Meats.  One cut is somehow better than the next!  Tonight we cooked some hot Italian sausage - it was so flavourful and had some really nice heat without being overbearing.  They did an excellent job on the sausages.

I found this recipe on All Recipes, and it was just perfect exactly as I found it - except I did scale it down for 2 people.  I've put the ingredients for 6 people at the end.  I've never had a recipe come out so great!  Jer roasted some broccoli in the oven to complete the meal (broccoli tossed with olive oil and plenty of minced garlic, along with fresh black pepper, and a roasted red pepper and garlic seasoning).  Dinner was simple to make, and was ready within 45 minutes.  And it was the best thing I've eaten in ages!  Enjoy!  This recipe is a keeper :) 

Prep time: 10 - 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 links Italian sausage 
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter (we used coconut butter) 
  • 1/4 yellow onion, sliced 
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon white wine

DIRECTIONS
  1. Place sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown on all sides (you don't need to cook fully).  Remove from skillet, and slice.
  2. Melt butter in the skillet.  Stir in the yellow onion, red onion, and garlic, and cook 2 to 3 minutes.  Mix in red bell pepper.  Season with basil, and oregano.  Stir in white wine.  Continue to cook and stir until peppers and onions are tender.
  3. Return sausage slices to skillet with the vegetables.  Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes, or until sausage is cooked.

 For 6 Servings:
