The popular Italian dish, Italian sausage, onions and peppers, can be served by itself or on a sandwich roll. Another dish, the Maxwell Street Polish sausage sandwich, is a deep-fried Polish sausage served on a poppy seed hot dog bun, topped with grilled onions, mustard and sport peppers.
To make Italian sausage, onions and peppers, heat 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil in a heavy skillet, then add 1 pound of sweet Italian sausages, and brown them on both sides. Next, remove the sausages, and drain the excess fat from the pan. Add two sliced red bell peppers, two sliced yellow onions, black pepper and salt. Sauté the peppers and onions for about five minutes, then stir in 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, 1/2 cup of chopped fresh basil leaves and four cloves of chopped garlic.
Sauté these ingredients for two minutes, then stir in 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. Add 1 cup of Marsala wine, 15 ounces of diced tomatoes and 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Stir the ingredients thoroughly, and bring them to a simmer. Cut the sausages into 1-inch cubes, and stir them into the pan with the other ingredients. Simmer the ingredients for about 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened, then serve the dish in bowls or on Italian sandwich rolls.
