Prep Time:

Cooking Time:
20 minutes


  • 4 Ontario pork hot italian sausages
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup Italian red wine
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 4 fresh sausage buns, optional

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Grill the sausages, over direct heat (lid closed), until browned and fully cooked (8-10 minutes, turning 4 times).
  3. Heat olive oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat, add the peppers, onions, salt, and pepper and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the oregano, basil, and garlic and cook 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the tomato paste and stir. Add the wine, tomatoes, and chili flakes…stir to combine, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release any browned bits. Bring to a simmer.
  5. Add the grilled sausage to the pan and stir to combine. Cook until the sauce has thickened (5-10 minutes).
  6. Split the rolls in half lengthwise (I suggest toasting on the grill or under the broiler for one minute). Fill the bottom half of the roll with pepper/onion mixture and top with sausage. Serve sandwiches immediately with a selection of hot, regular and sweet mustard.

No grill, no problem! – heat ¼ cup olive oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausages and cook until brown on all sides (8-10 minutes). Remove from the skillet and drain.

Keeping the pan over medium heat, add the peppers, onions, salt, and pepper and continue as above.
