Sausage and Peppers Marinara
3 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1¼ lbs hot Italian sausages (or use a mixture of sweet and hot)
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 medium peppers, (red and green) cut into thin strips
28 oz can diced tomatoes; with juice
4 tbsp oregano
2 tbsp thyme
5 sprigs fresh basil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a large skillet with a lid, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add sausages and onion; cook, turning the sausages to brown all sides, until onions are just tender, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and bell peppers and cook another couple of minutes. Add tomatoes, basil, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper. Raise heat to high and cook until liquid starts to boil. Turn the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the sausages feel firm about 25 minutes. Cut the sausages into slices or leave whole for serving. Serve with fresh pasta or bread!
