Shop Ingredients


  1. Poke each sausage a few times with a paring knife or fork (this helps release steam as they cook).
  2. In a large skillet with a lid, heat olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add sausages and brown gently and slowly. Cook for 5 minutes, turning occasionally to gently brown on all sides. (They should not be fully cooked.)
  3. Once browned, remove sausages to a plate. Set aside.
  4. Increase heat to high. Add onion and pepper slices. Toss to coat in oil and sear vegetables until slightly blackened, stirring often. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
  5. Add Holland House® Red Cooking Wine, scraping bottom of pan with a wooden spoon to release blackened bits. Simmer wine until reduced by half.
  6. Add Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir well to combine.
  7. Add sausages. Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat to low.
  8. Cover and simmer until peppers are soft and sausages are cooked through, about 10 minutes.
