Roasted Sausage Cacciatore

Who doesn't love sausage and peppers. I had so many different versions. I came up with this one after having a few blah boring ones. The secret in this dish is slow roasting the sausage until it is nice and soft, melt in your mouth. You can use sweet or hot sausage if you like it spicy or you can even mix the two. Sometimes I pile it up with bread, sometimes over pasta or sometimes just plain with the bread on the side. This is perfect for company, parties, or even game day. 
  • Ingredients
  • 1 package Italian Sausages 6 Count - About 1/2 Pound
  • 1 whole Bell Pepper Seeded Sliced Into Half Inch Strips
  • 1 whole Large Vidalia Onion Sliced Into Half Inch Strips
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Smashed And Chopped
  • 1-½ cup Of Your Favorite Marinara Sauce
  • 1 jar 12oz Roasted Red Peppers Sliced Into Half Inch Strips
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 pinch Each, Salt And Pepper (to Taste)
  • ⅛ cups Grated Parmesan Reggiano Cheese

Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Heat a large oven proof skillet to medium high heat. Brown sausage links on each side. Once all of the sides are browned, place in an oven proof dish. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
While sausage is roasting; sauté bell pepper, onion and garlic, for about 10 minutes over medium heat. Once they start to soften, add the cup of sauce, roasted peppers, basil, garlic powder, pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and cheese, continue cooking for 5 more minutes stirring frequently.
Remove sausage from oven, slice into pieces and addthe peppers and onions. Return skillet to oven for another 20 minutes until hot and bubbly and sauce is reduced.
