This was a yummy recipe! I cut the amount of sausage WAY down since there were only 2 adults eating this and ended up using about 1.5 pounds of hot italian sausage. I increased the garlic by double and subbed marinara that I had pre-made in place of the tomato sauce. I had a little bit of trouble with smoke in my oven from the olive oil. Maybe I put too much? Flavor was great...ended up serving on rolls with provolone over the top and melting it a bit. VERY nice! Made for Pac Fall 2008!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place sausage on a baking sheet and liberally drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Approx 2 tablespoons
  3. Place in hot oven and roast until casings are crisp and juices run clear, somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, let sausages rest.
  5. While sausages roast, heat a skillet over medium heat with 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and sliced garlic.
  6. Simmer garlic in olive oil 2 to 3 minutes then add peppers and onions. Turn the heat up a notch and cook until the vegetables are tender but the peppers still hold strong color, 5-6 minutes.
  7. Add thinned tomato sauce, salt and pepper and reduce.
  8. turn heat back to low and hold the veggies until the sausage comes out of the oven.
  9. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
