This simple, classic Italian comfort food recipe makes a perfect weeknight meal and is easily scaled up to feed a crowd. Inspired by my Calabrese father-in-law!


Units Scale
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 Italian sausages (hot, sweet, or a mix of both)
  • 1 large white onion, sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • Crusty bread, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausages and sear until browned on both sides.
  3. Add onion and bell peppers. Drizzle with remaining tablespoon of oil and season with oregano, salt and pepper. Pour wine over top and give it a stir. Transfer to preheated oven and cook, uncovered, for about 45 minutes, or until onions and peppers have cooked down and softened a bit.
  4. Serve sausage and peppers in crusty bread and prepare to meet your new favorite sandwich!
