Sunday Brunch in this house is a big meal and this was perfect, served with an omelet and stir fries Jeruselum Artichokes with leeks (new recipe not yet posted) and crust baguette slices. I cut the amounts way back because there were only 3 of us. I confess I only used one pan but the flavors blended beautifully - Thanks Dancer another winner — Added comments: I made this again for supper and I made a mistake I used Vegetarian Hot Italian Sausages - It was nowhere near as tasty as last time - I posted this comment as a caution - follow the recipe. Also I used white onions they worked well,

i also used only 1 pan as we enjoy both hot and sweet italian sausages. Totally enjoyed the meal and it would be perfect to bring to a covered dish. DH said it was the best sausage and peppers he ever ate. Must be the chianti wine that made it a winner. Thanks for posting.

I don't know what I can add that hasn't already been said. My family and I thought this was excellent. I also cooked all the ingredients in one big pan and thought the flavor of the two sausages was better together than it would have been if they were cooked separately. Served with a hot loaf of Italian bread. Just wonderful. Thanks Dancer^.
