1/4 c extra-virgin olive oil

1-lb sweet Italian sausage

2 bell peppers, sliced

2 yellow onions, sliced

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

4 garlic cloves, chopped

2 tbsp tomato paste

1 c Marsala wine (or chicken broth)

1 (15-oz) can diced tomatoes

Salt to taste

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, optional


Place a skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium.

Add oil and allow it to become hot.

Add the sausages and cook each side for about 10 minutes or until brown.

Remove the sausage from the skillet onto a clean plate.

In the same pan, add basil, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Sauté for about a minute or until aromatic.
