Spicy and sweet italian sausages in a mellow tomato-wine sauce with sliced bell peppers and juicy onions.
Serves: 4
  • 1 package Hot Italian Sausage
  • 1 package Mild Italian Sausage
  • 2 Red Bell Peppers
  • 3 small Yellow Onions
  • 1 can of Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Splenda
  • ½ cup White Wine
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Place your sausages in a large nonstick pan.
  2. Brown them on both sides. You do not need to cook them through, you just want the outside to get a nice color and sear.
  3. Remove from the pan and cut each link in half.
  4. Slice your bell peppers and onions into thick slices.
  5. Add peppers and onions to a large pan with 1 tablespoon of butter and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  6. Cook on medium high heat for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You just want the veggies to start to soften.
  7. Snuggle your italian sausages back into the pan with the onions and peppers.
  8. Pour in your diced tomatoes and white wine. Sprinkle with Splenda.
  9. Reduce heat to medium.
  10. Cover and cook for approximately 20 minutes, until the sausages and veggies are completely cooked through.
  11. Remove the cover, raise the heat to medium high, and continue cooking for approximately 10 minutes. During this step, we want to reduce the gravy by half, so the flavors are concentrated and the volume doesn't drown out the other ingredients.
  12. Serve.
