Reviews for Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions
Delicious! Diced up tomatoes from my garden, fresh basil cut in strips, 1 tsp olive oil, splash of white wine, red pepper flakes & black pepper, simmered for 5 minutes. Served with pasta and hot crusty bread! Definitely a keeper! My husband went back for seconds and I shall be enjoying this again for lunch today! Thank you for a great recipe!
I've made sausage & peppers before, but never added wine or garlic - much better! I used cubanelle (frying) peppers, and only had sweet onions, and it was still delicious. We had this as sandwiches.
I'm not sure if I ever reviewed this but this is my absolute favorite recipe on this site, and I like alot of them. Great on buns or in a bowl. Sweet, delicious taste. Every year now, this is my opening day March Madness meal!
I will never make Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions any other way! The wine deglazes the sausage fond and makes an awesome sauce. Fabulous!
We loved this!
I didn't change a thing and it was one of the most delicious recipes I have ever made. Thank you so much for sharing.
I made these last night, even though I used chicken sausage, these were the real deal!! highly recommend. if you are looking for traditional Italian sausage and peppers!
Goes very well with pasta.
This was quick, easy, and delicious! Made it according to directions and wouldn't change a thing. This recipe is going into my "make regularly" recipes folder because my husband thought it was amazing. Leftovers were served on a roll with melted cheese as sausage parmesan.
Excellent and easy!
Simple and delicious! I just added a bit of crushed red pepper because we like things spicy. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
delicious! used red and yellow peppers and only yellow onions (no red), and hot Italian sausage and it came out great! put shredded mozzerella on top
This recipe is delicious! I didn't have any red onion so I just omitted that and subbed some dark beer for the white wine. I wanted to serve it on top of pasta so I also threw in a can of diced tomatoes. Yummy! I would have taken a picture but it was gone before I could! ***UPDATE*** We love this and continue to make it, snapped the pic just before it was devoured- by me!
Really yummy! The smell of this cooking was intoxicating and we all couldn't wait to eat it. I sliced up the sausage (used Italian chicken sausage) to put in hot dog buns added the peppers and onions (which I used green and yellow) then topped with some gruyere cheese and threw it in the oven for the cheese to melt. Served with a side of marinara for dipping. VERY good dinner. Thanks so much!
I made this for a party of 72. It was the highlight of the meal! I used Del Russo sweet italian sausage and marsala wine. Having that many sausages to cook, I baked them in the oven the day before the party at 350 for about 1 hour, turning them over several times until they were nicely browned. I drained the grease and added it to the butter to saute the onions and peppers. I also added a little salt and pepper along with the basil, oregeno and thyme too. I added a large can of tomato sauce and tomato paste with the wine and put them in a large baking dish. The next day I put the pan in the oven at 350 and baked the whole dish for 2 1/2 hours. Served them on buns along with some mozerella cheese. Delicious and very tender.
I enjoyed this recipe and hadn't made anything like it before. I didn't have green bell pepper, red onion, or the wine (I used water) so I couldn't use them. I did have everything else. I rated this a 5 because I think it deserves a 5, but my version I would rate a 4. I think the green bell and wine (or even chix stock) would have given it the over the top edge in flavor. But I was not disappointed. I will be sure next time I have all ingredients on hand! Thanks for sharing!!
YUM! We loved these. I made the sausages just as the recipe states. Then, I put them on a brat bun that I had toasted and then grated parmasean cheese on top. YUM! It was sooo good. My family loved them. I will be making them again next week!.
This was really good. I used half sweet and half hot sausage. It was also very good on a grinder.
I made this delicious, quick and simple recipe...we loved it. I didn't put in the butter, just little water to keep it simmering. I also added a can of tomatoes and mushrooms. I added already cooked rigatoni noodles from another meal...Added them to make this an all around great one serving meal.
Fabo! Replaced wine with cooking sherry and it was awesome. Toasted hoagie sandwiches with Dijon mustard tonight and over pasta later in the week. Low fat and healthy too. A keeper for sure.
Excellent! I did not change a thing. This recipe has became a staple in our house. We make it at least a couple of times a month.
I have made this twice. It was much much better when the onions and peppers were cut small. Great recipe and easy 1 dish clean up!
Thank you so much for this keeper of a recipe. To add heat I added 2 sliced pickled jalapeno peppers. Two thumbs up!!!
Doubled this and made it for a party. It was a hit! We put it in a crockpot to keep warm and serve.
I used hot sausage and added red pepper flakes for spice. Subbed olive oil for butter and red wine for white. I also added a can of tomatoes. I increased the garlic because I always increase the amount of garlic. Very tasty.
This was delicious!! My husband even loved it (and he never wants to try anything new)! I did do a little tweaking though. I used 1/2 sweet and 1/2 hot italian sausage. Also, when sausage is almost done browning, I added 2 chicken breasts cut into pieces and cooked through and pulled the sausage and chicken out when sausage was ready for slicing. I added zucchini in with the peppers and doubled the garlic and the wine then after the peppers and onions got soft I added 2 regular sized cans of diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano. While cooking, I microwaved a baking potato for 5 minutes til almost done then peeled it and chopped into decent sized pieces and mixed in during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Can eat alone or on top of penne or angel hair pasta. Was AMAZING! My husband requests I make this again and my mom wants the recipe already too! Enjoy!
This is fantastic and easy! I made this when my full-Italian mother-in-law came to visit and she loved it. A true test! We had it with polenta and escarole one night and the next day we put the sausage left-overs in hoagie rolls, topped with provolone and broiled them. Delicious! I used sherry instead of the wine because that's what I had on hand. I also used half sweet Italian and half hot Italian sausages. I have also made this with chicken sausage (used vermouth instead of the white wine) and it was equally good (maybe better because it's less guilt-inducing!) Thanks for a great recipe.
My mom used to make Italian sausages with peppers and onions and I loved it growing up. This recipe is very good and I follow it exactly except I leave the sausages whole for sandwiches and for over pasta I slice them and add a can of tomatoes. Very good, thank you.
The wine tops this lovely dish off. I used a mix of sweet and spicy Ital. Sausages which I sliced up (per instructions) and added to the peppers and onions before serving. It is thick enough to be served alone as a 'stir-fry' or on hoagies in the traditional manner. Fresh Parmesan Cheese sprinkled lightly across the top gives it just a dash of that extra some people crave.
This is one of our favorites will be serving over penne pasta tonight, but it always seem that we don't have enough pepper and onions so I made a boat load, I doubled the recipe. The great thing is that it is low on calories and it is always a treat for breakfast as well. it goes well with scrambled eggs. Thanks, Happy Cooking!
really good, everyone went back for seconds. I used olive oil instead of the butter and added some chopped plum tomatoes.
My husband loved this recipe. I followed it exactly. In place of fresh veggies, to save time and money, i used a medley of frozen peppers (of all colors) and onions. This is definitely a remake for me.
Delicious! The only change I made was to add red pepper flakes because we like things spicy. Very, very tasty! Will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!
Delish ! My first time making this dish, I followed the instructions, and it came out perfect ! I recommend !
If you use sweet & hot Italian sausage, I learned to cut one of them in half. Then you know which one is sweet & which is hot. No guessing. Helps when you have a good number of people for the meal and different tastes are present. Be a good host!
YUM but lose the butter and try olive oil for an authentic Italian dish. Also use a winking owl chardonnay and save some moolah at the same time. O solo mio!
Oh so good! I used half sweet italian sausage and half hot. I melted provolone cheese on sub rolls under the broiler and served the sausage, peppers & onions on top. My husband kept making those "Mmmm good" sounds as he ate! Make sure to drain the juices off from the wine; I just used a strainer. Otherwise the subs would have been way too soggy. Overall, this is a great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
This is definitely a staple for dinner with my Italian family. We usually throw in some cubed potatoes as well. I also like to use hot sausage, but I tend to favor spicy food anyway.
This was really good!!! The only small changes is made was I used olive oil instead of butter, added a small pinch of fennel seed and a small pinch of red pepper flakes. We served this over spaghetti and it was great!!! I did slice the sausage into rounds before browning too.
This was excellant and very easy, I added a little chicken broth towards the end to make extra broth. Tasty and easy - my kind of recipe.
This was really good. Like another reviewer suggested I used beer instead of white wine. I also only used 1 yellow onion and there was more than enough. This definitely is not enough for 6 people, 1 sausage link per person is not enough! If you're cooking for 6 I would double the recipe.
This was amazing. It was one of those dishes that you knew was going to be awesome as you were making it. I only had red wine on hand (as always!) and it worked out just fine. I also threw in some julienned zucchini to use it up and it was great. I served this on crusty rolls. Yum. The leftovers are calling my name......
This recipe was tasty as well as beautiful! I made this for the Christmas Eve buffet table and the bright colors stood out! My guests raved about this and my hubby has had me make it three times since! Love it! Using a food processor helped to make prep work easier.
I do the veggies as following the recipe then add marinara and the sausage to the mix. Serve on hogi style buns with provolone or mozzarella cheese.
After having a BAD DAY ,I stopped by the Bada-Bing & the pork store & got some sweet & hot links. Carm cooked 'em up in a little "Dago-red" & we feel that GIGI9801 is a real life saver!!!
I made some of the changes mentioned by other reviewers. Here's the rundown since I made a big quantity: for 24 6" links I used 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 orange pepper. Used 2 yellow onions, 1 red onion, 2 tsp minced garlic, 2 tsp dried basil, 1 cup Corona beer. Didn't have oregano. Substituted olive oil for butter. Browned sausage, didn't slice up. Then sauteed the other ingredients, added sausage and beer and simmered for 30 minutes. Refrigerated, microwaved next day to heat up and then put in crock pot to stay warm for neighborhood picnic. Served on buns. Got lots of compliments. Made a batch of sweet and hot and both disappeared. It's both delicious and colorful. Thanks for the recipe, gigi9801!
This was great!
This was awesome! My husband and I loved it. This is a keeper.
I followed the recipe with the exception of adding salt and pepper, and it turned out great!
This was great. Made with spicy italian sausage and subbed chicken broth for white wine. Added black pepper, red pepper flakes, and a small amount of salt. Great by itself, served mixed with cavatappi and shredded mozzarella the next day and it was even better!
YUMMY!!! This is a fabulous recipe!! Very easy to make - and no alterations needed! I used beer instead of wine - and it was just as good!! Try it with Italian Turkey Sausage as a healthier alternative. I served this with whole wheat angel hair pasta and Paul Newman's Sockaroni Pasta Sauce! Thank you for such an amazing recipe that I will use again!!
maybe I'll didnt do something right, but the kind of turkey sausage was a no, no!
Wow. Amazing how simple ingredients can taste so wonderful and make such a colorful presentation (I use red & orange peppers). I added crushed red pepper for an extra kick.
See notes to changes
Great meal - my family prefers the recipe with a small can of tomato sauce.
This is really good. Better than any recipe I've ever tried with Italian sausage. The peppers and onions had to much flavor. Next time I will add more.
I make this recipe a lot (double the amount) and the next day I add pasta sauce to it and put it on white rice. This way I get two meals out of it. Everyone likes it.
Outstanding! Only changes I made were to use olive oil instead of butter and used 1 link of Itallian Hot sausage and 1 link of Italian Mild (as suggested by GIGI9801). I will make this again.
An excellent recipe. I always add julienned sun dried tomatoes to the recipe. I like some tomato flavor I don't want to overwhelm the dish with runny tomato sauce. Great dish.
Loved the recipe really easy to work with and alter,I followed other suggestions,used beer instead of wine,used the can of diced tomatoes with basil,oregano,and garlic(left out adding xtra spices,but i still added fresh garlic,)then served over some pasta...will definitely make again!!!!
Delicious flavor. I used mild Italian sausage but added a little bit of cayenne. Served over penne pasta, topped with shredded Parmesan.
This was sooooo good! I did make one change at the advise of others and added a can of diced tomatoes as well. Delightful!
I made this for dinner tonight,along with lasagna. It was soooooo! good!
Very good. Used turkey sausage and served with penne pasta.
Wonderful! I've made sausage, peppers, and onions before, but the addition of white wine made a world of difference. Like other reviewers, I added mushrooms (about 4 oz) and lots of pepper. Also, I've found it to be a time-saver to chop up the sausage before cooking it; it doesn't make much of a flavor difference.
Yum, yum, yum! We loved this using hot Italian sausages, and stuffed it all into hoagie buns. Will make this again and again.
MMM! This was so good. I served mine over penne and added a can of tomatoes. Everyone loved it. My only complaint is that it is a day later and my house smells like sausage and peppers still.
Delish served over Oven Brown Rice from this site.
I have made this many many times and my family loves it. I have not changed anything. I am making it for a party tomorrow.
I've made this a bunch of times for my family and they love it. It's very easy to make, and it tastes great. The white wine makes a nice sauce. Make sure to have some crusty bread to soak up the juices with!
This was wonderful! I did make it slightly different by adding white wine vinegar - instead of white wine - and about a tbs of sugar which gave it a great zip! I also made it in my iron skillet and allowed it to caramelize a bit. At the last minute, I decided to layer it into a casserole dish with a basic tomato basil sauce, whole wheat spaghetti noodles, and havarti cheese; baked it at 350 for 30 minutes; melted more cheese on top for another 5 and it was AMAZING!!
Very good recipe! I threw in some shallots & fresh mushrooms I had on hand and served it Italian quesadilla-style on tortillas left over from taco night at my house. Put tortillas on cookie sheet, topped them with sliced provolone then heated them under the broiler just until cheese melted. Then topped them with the sausage & peppers and folded tortillas in half! Wonderfully filling sandwich type way of serving dish and the boys in my house seemed very pleased with the results!
This recipe was soooo easy and it was absolutely delicious!!!! I followed the recipe exactly and it was completely gone by the end of our family get together! Great recipe!
This is my husband's favorite dinner. It's a very simple dinner that turns out wonderful every time. I use a butter/olive oil combo instead of just butter (butter for browning onion/garlic and then add a some oil shortly before adding the peppers). I use double the amount of peppers and substitute Italian seasoning for the two spices in the ingredient list. We usually use this as filling for hoagies.
This is the exact recipe I have used over the years. An old famous sub shop owner gave it to me about 20 years ago (he used sausages or steak pieces). Only difference is we add a half +/- tablespoon olive oil with a tablespoon of the butter so it doesn't burn, salt and pepper, and a teaspoon of sugar to taste which sweetened up the onions and peppers more so than without (I personally sprinkle a tiny bit of Sweet and Low or Stevia or Agave whatever I have on hand). It's personal preference I think. I love this loaded up on a Fantini roll. Better than at the fairs!
This recipe was very simple and was good. I used hot Italian sausage instead of sweet sausage because we prefer the spicy sausage. I served it on toasted Italian sub rolls with melted provolone. I would definitely make these again, but, I think I will let the onions and peppers carmelize more before adding the white wine.
Delicious! I grew up eating sausage and peppers and yet, have never made this dish. I followed the instructions, but used chicken sausage instead of regular sausage. I also used chicken broth in place of the wine, solely because I did not have the wine. I added a pint of grape tomatoes and let them burst in the sausage mixture. I also added some salt, black pepper, and hot red pepper. Great recipe!
This was my first time making sausage and peppers, and I liked this quite a bit! I used olive oil instead of butter and an orange pepper instead of a green one. It was slightly bland; so I added salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I would make this recipe again!
I have saved this receipe as one of my favorites!
This was really yummy! I followed the recipe as directed.
Excellent. I grilled the sausage first then added them to the pan without slicing them. We served in hoagie rolls with all the veggies over top. These were the perfect sausage sandwich.
This was yummy! Served it over farfelle pasta.
Terrific recipe! I changed just a couple of things. I used beer instead of wine and olive oil instead of butter as previous poster had done. I also used a mixture of hot (not sweet) pork and turkey sausage. Came out great! I also drizzled a little extra olive oil on towards the end to thicken the sauce more. The family loved it so much I'm making more tonight!
One of my favorites! This is the first recipe I tried on allrecipes.com and its the one that I always come back to. Now, this recipe is my "secret sausage and peppers recipe!!"
Easy and delicious! A great way to use up some of the many peppers from my garden.
This was yummy. After reading several reviews and worrying a bit that it was going to be too dry, I added half a can of petite diced garlic/olive oil seasoned tomatoes. It was good, but I think it actually would have been fine leaving the tomatoes out. I'd at least use plain tomatoes next time if I add tomatoes again as the seasoned ones made it a little too flavoured over all. Very simple and tasty though, I would definitely make again.
Excellent recipe, long on flavor and super simple. I subbed beer for the wine and served over brown rice. Considered cooking in the oven or crockpot, but I was not willing to give up that extra kick of flavor the sausage browning step imparts to the dish.
Super easy and delicious! We'll be making this again and again.
Very good. I used Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage instead of Italian, omitted the garlic, and used chicken broth instead of the wine. I didn't have a red onion on hand, so I used an additional half of a yellow onion instead. It tasted great! I did have to add more broth after simmering so that I would have enough sauce to serve it over rice. I used less than a half can of broth; the next time I make it, I will probably put more broth in at the end so that I have more liquid to serve over rice.
This was sooooo good. Made these changes: used hot turkey sausage instead of pork, used sherry instead of white wine. This was easy and quick. We put it in a french roll with provolone cheese on it and put it under the broiler for a minute. My husband said it might be the best sandwich he ever tasted, in fact he said that he could eat these sandwiches every day...that is saying a lot considering he never gives recipes above a 4 star.
I used Italian frying peppers from my CSA and added cherry tomatoes because I'm putting them in just about everything at this time of year when they are still so prolific in the garden. I thought it might have been too dry and a bit bland without them. Perhaps I will take other reviewers' advice and add canned tomatoes if I make it out of tomato season.
I coked this dish today and it is so delicious! My husband even went for a second serving. I bow-tie pasta
very tasty! I actually used, red, green & yellow bell peppers and threw in a kick of cayenne pepper. I served over hoagie rolls w/mozz cheese. BF said they were wonderful. will be making again, very quick & easy.
This was wonderful and delicious and there were no leftovers! I used turkey sweet Italian sausage and no-one was the wiser.
I loved this recipe, but I too made a few alterations. I used olive oil instead of butter, cut out the dried herbs and used fresh basil only, red instead of white wine and added 1 small can of tomato sauce with the sausage pieces. It came out fabulous.
I love sausage & peppers and this recipe tasted delicious. I used sweet Vidalia onions and cheese & parsley flavored sausage. It was a big hit with my family.
I made this recipe for the first time last night, never having made sausage and peppers before. The recipe came out great, The only thing I changed was not adding white wine, otherwise, followed the recipe exactly. My husband and i loved it. We had it on grinder rolls, and with a salad and corn on the cob, it was the perfect meal, easy too. I'll be making this again.
this was great. easy to make and the taste is amazing.
