Sausage Scallopini

A traditional favorite in our house; Sausage Scallopini is a quick and delicious meal.

You can use either hot or sweet Italian sausage, or even chicken or turkey sausage. It’s entirely up to you. I prefer hot Italian.

The peppers, same here, red or green. I do prefer the red bells to the green. Better flavor and they just look prettier.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage, sliced into 1-inch rounds
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 large bell peppers, red or green, sliced
  • 1 pound white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • red wine
  • Kosher salt
  • black pepper

Prepare all of your ingredients and set aside.

In a large, heavy skillet, heat a small amount of olive oil. Once hot, add the sausage and cook until golden brown. About 15 minutes.

Add peppers and onions to the pan.

Season with salt and pepper and cook down a bit.

Add mushrooms to pan.

Again, cook down, stirring frequently. Season again with salt and pepper.

Add the entire can of tomatoes and about a 1/4 cup of the red wine.

Season with a bit more salt and pepper. Simmer, low heat, for about 45 minutes.

Serve. White rice goes nicely with this dish.
