Wow. This was good. I've played with this recipe for a bit and finally think I found one I can live with.

• 2 lbs. mild Italian sausage links
• 2 yellow onions, chopped coarsely
• 2 green bell pepper, frenched into 1-2" pieces
• 2 red bell pepper, frenched into 1-2" pieces
• 2 bay leaves
• 5 cloves garlic - minced
• 14 oz can diced tomatoes - undrained
• 6 oz can tomato paste
• 1/2-3/4 cup dry red wine
• 1 Tbsp fresh parsley - chopped
• 1 Tbsp fresh oregano leaves - chopped
• 1 Tbsp fresh basil leaves – chopped
• 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp black pepper
Cook sausage direct until browned, turning occasionally. Allow sausages to cool and slice in ½” - ¾” sections on a bias. Layer half of the onions on bottom of 3-4 quart Dutch oven, then add half of the peppers. Add all of the sausage, then the rest of the onions and peppers. Add bay leaves, crushed red pepper, and garlic.
Combine diced undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, and red wine in small bowl and mix well to blend. Pour over mixture in Dutch oven. Cook indirect at 325* for 4-6 hours.
One hour before mixture is done, mix together parsley, basil, oregano, and salt and pepper. Add to Dutch oven and stir well.
Serve over a bed of rotini, gemelli, farfalle, or penne pasta with fresh grated parmesan-reggiano and a nice crusty Italian loaf.

    My Goodness Rod. That looks absolutely fantastic. Love the colors and from the ingredient list I'd guess it tastes even better than it looks. :cheer:

    It's not a tough cook, but very rewarding.

    Nice job! Do you grow your own herbs at home? That recipe sounds really nice--thanks for sharing!
  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    Yea, we have a pretty good sized herb garden. The basil and oregano just got big enough to pick from this week.

    We also do two kinds of parsley, dill, sage, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, and chives. That is in addition to the tomatoes and peppers that are not in the ground yet.

    Man hollow out a loaf of french bread and a cold porter or in bill's case, glass of fancy sounding wine :laugh: , and it would be on!! Saving this one to my favorites.
  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    I actually did this with a loaf of roasted garlic tuscan bread. Nice complement to the spiciness of the sauce.

    I served this with a 2003 William Hill Estates Napa Valley Cab.

    Most of my wine has a screw top on it OR comes from under my 75 gal. aquariam stand in small batches. Learned homemade fruit wine making from father-in-law who lives in N. Ark. ;) Got some white muskidine that needs siphening up now! :whistle:

    This is one nice looking cook. It tastes good just looking at it.

    Shelagh said is this what's for dinner tomorrow. I told her soon but not tomorrow, we have some chili to eat.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe with us all, Kent
