"I think every Italian family makes this dish, with slight variations of course, within their own family traditions. While this is a fairly standard way of making sausage and peppers, my family uses ol..." See moreive oil rather than butter, uses little or no herbs (fresh basil is always nice here), red wine rather than white, and some crushed or diced canned tomatoes, or marinara sauce. Great on Italian rolls or over a sturdy pasta. This is always a treat!"
"I have to thank you for a sensational recipe. This is one of those recipes where if you follow the directions and the ingredient list, it's perfect.

Very important that you find good italian sausage. Find a good italian deli if you're lucky enough to have one nearby. I used mild sausage with the fennel seed inside--a key seasoning in good italian sausage. One other thing though, I cooked everything in a dutch oven on the stovetop, and under low heat I left it on the stove for about 45 minutes, and found that the extra time further reduced and caramelized the onions and the redpeppers, which makes this dish even better. I served it with a side of pasta with my favorite Barilla pasta sauce. It doesn't get any better than this recipe. Thanks for sharing one of your favorite family recipes and spreading the love."
