Oven Baked Sausage and Peppers – You will do this entire meal all in one casserole dish in the oven. And, it will be getting itself ready for you while you enjoy some wine out on the deck. Or, nah, catching up on some chores. I hope that your option includes the deck. I’ve posted this before but done in a cookie sheet. I saw it done in a casserole dish on a real good website called Italian Food Forever. It has lots and lots of real good Italian recipes. The casserole dish works out better if you just want to put it on the table with a large serving spoon and just let folks get their own.
Turn the oven on at 450°F/230°C. You’re gonna have to cut up the veggies. Sorry about that. Onions, Pepper, Garlic, tomatoes and potatoes. Put them into an oven safe casserole dish.
Drizzle them pretty generously with olive oil and sprinkle the salt and pepper. Also a little bit of red pepper flakes if you want. Toss everything together with a big spoon or just use your hands. Poke some holes in the sausage and lay them out on the veggies.
Put it in the oven. Pour some wine. Get out on the deck. 10 minutes. One glass of wine. Turn the sausage links over. 10 more minutes. Another glass of wine? Take one of the links out and cut it in half. If there isn’t any pink in the middle it is done. If there is a little pink just put it back and come back 5 minutes later and do the same with another link. They should be done. If not just give them another five minutes while you get a little more wine comfort.
Serve up your Oven Baked Sausage and Peppers. You still should be able to function. A confession. Shhh,,Gammy and I finished a bottle of good Chianti with this awesome, down home Italian meal.
