Italian Sausage and Peppers my way – Chef Charles Knight

Italian sausage has been a popular food for many centuries, but its origins are not widely known. The method of making sausage was discovered by the Romans when they invaded Germany in the 12th and 13th centuries. They combined ground pork leftovers with fennel, garlic, paprika, and spices, stuffed the mixture into pig intestines, and cooked it for consumption over time and travel. This method proved to be a perfect way to preserve meat and give it exceptional flavor. Today, Italian sausage is a beloved food around the world and is enjoyed in a variety of dishes.

PREPARATION: 1 hour – 4 servings

EQUIPMENT: French chef knife, Cutting Board, Large Sauté Skillet, Rotary Mandolin Food Cutter


  • 1-pound Italian sausage (5 links Johnsonville)
  • 1 large onion peeled and sliced.
  • ½ bulb garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 24-ounce jar or can roasted red peppers packed in water
  • fresh basil leaves, as many as you want
  • Hot pepper seeds optional
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Italian hot dog rolls optional


To make a delicious sausage dish with a flavorful sauce, preheat a large sauté skillet over medium heat to 275F and add the sausage to the pan. Use no oil or butter. Continue to turn and brown the sausage on all sides, which should take about 10 to 12 minutes. As you brown the sausage, a brown fond will form on the cooking surface of the pan, which will in part create the sauce.

Once the sausage is browned, add onions and garlic to the pan. Cover the pan and open the vent to let steam escape. Reduce the heat to low heat around 200ᵒF and let the sausage, onions, and garlic cook until they are tender and flavorful. About 15 minutes.

Add the roasted peppers and liquid, the oregano - cover the skillet, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes until the roasted pepper dissolves into a sauce. Top with basil leaves and cook another 5 to 10 minutes to enhance the flavor.

To serve, top with grated parmesan cheese. Also, you can serve with pasta if you like, or on an Italian Hot Dog Roll.
