  • While sausage is cooking, in a pan large enough for all ingredients, over medium heat, saute onions and peppers in olive oil 5-7 minutes until onions are almost translucent, add garlic and saute for 2 more minutes (DO NOT allow garlic to get brown or it will be bitter), reduce heat to simmer.
  • To pan of onions/peppers/garlic add jar of pre-made sauce (fill empty jar with a splash of water or beer :) , close lid, shake to rinse, open and add to sauce), fire roasted tomatoes, bay leaves, italian seasoning, sugar, and smoked paprika.
