For 5 Person(s)
For the Sausage:
- 2 pounds sweet Italian sausage (or hot if you prefer)

- In a large pan, add three Tbs of EV olive oil and the onion cut in thin slices.
- Saute` the onion until it becomes translucent.
- Wash the peppers and cut them in quarters or more parts depending on their size. Add them to the pan.
- Add the tomatoes and the wine as well as salt and hot pepper as desired.
- Cook the peppers for a good 20 minutes. Add the sausage and cook for an additional 10 minutes. By now the peppers should be soft.
- Serve hot.
