This is one of my favourite ways to cook sausages and it can be made with any type of good quality sausages, but preferably with chipolatas or merguez, as they will add much more flavour and depth to your dish. When choosing peppers…. I love using Romanos as they have an extremely sweet flesh, and Charestons which have the flavour of the hot peppers without the searing heat. Spice it up with a touch of chilli

Serves 2-4
Ingredients
6 medium sausages (pork, beef or lamb)
1 large red onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
3 red peppers, washed, caps removed, seeded and cut into chunky pieces
2 green peppers, washed, caps removed, seeded and cut into chunky pieces
400g tomato passata
1 tbsp of tomato paste
½ cup of red wine
1 tsp of sweet or smoked paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
Chilli flakes (optional)
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper

Method

Heat 2 tablespoon olive oil in a non-stick pan and shallow fry the sausages over medium heat until browned and mostly cooked through. Remove sausage from pan but keep any fat leftover in your pan. Add the onions and garlic to this fat and cook over low heat until soft (about 7-10 minutes).

Add some more olive to your pan if needed then add the peppers and the wine and toss everything together. Add the tomato passata as well as the tomato purée and the paprika, chilli flakes and season with salt and pepper. Cut the sausages into chunky pieces, return them back to the pan and cook everything together for 15 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the dried oregano. The sausages can be eaten with feta or yoghurt.
