  • 1 lb Italian sausage links mild or hot
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup yellow onion sliced
  • 1 cup red onion sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • ¼ cup parsley fresh and chopped


  • Heat skillet over medium+ heat. Then, add the uncooked sausage links. Brown the sausage links for about 2-3 minutes on all the sides.
  • The sausage will not be cooked through, but remove the sausages from the skillet. Place sausage on a cutting board. Slice the sausage links into 4-5 diagonal pieces and drape tin foil over them. Set aside.
  • Next, add 1 tbsp olive oil to the skillet (still over medium). Add the onions and bell peppers in the same skillet and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • When peppers and onions have started to soften add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and red flakes. Continue stirring the peppers and onions for about 3 minutes.
  • Pour balsamic vinegar and water into the skillet with the peppers and onions, and scrape the bottom of the skillet to release all the brown bits.
  • Put the slices of sausage pieces back into the skillet, stir and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover to cook through for about 10 minutes.
  • Then, uncover the skillet and increase the heat to medium. Cook for 3 more minutes or just until the liquid is evaporated and the sausage is cooked completely.
  • Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
