- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 jalapeno pepper
- 1 large red bell pepper, sliced thinly

- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes

This will allow the sausages to cook gently in the water, remaining tender and juicy, while the casings will become browned. Once the water boils away, turn the sausages to be sure they brown evenly on all sides. Remove the sausages from the pan.

Heat the rest of the olive oil in the same skillet. Add the peppers, garlic, and onions. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to start. Cook the pepper mixture until the peppers begin to soften. Add the tomato paste and wine. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer the mixture for 15 minutes or until the peppers are tender.
