Cooking spray.

3 small spoons.Of olive oil.

¼ small spoons.Of dried oregano.

¼ small spoons.Of dried basil.

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

2 small spoons.Of minced fresh garlic.

A large spoons.Of Balsamic vinegar.


Step 1:

First, you need to add the cut onions and bell peppers to a large microwave-safe mixing bowl and mix well. Cook on high for 8-10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Step 2:

Meanwhile, cut the four sausages into thin slices, approximately 14 inches thick, and set them. Cooking spray should be sprayed over a big nonstick skillet. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, or until the sausage pieces are lightly browned on both sides. Stir the mixture often. Transfer the sausages to a serving dish.

Step 3:

Spray the Cooking spray, and pour 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, then add in the sautéed onions and bell peppers, along with the oregano, basil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 4:

Cook, turning often, over medium-high heat for approximately 10 minutes, or until the veggies are tender and slightly caramelized on the edges. Adding an additional teaspoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of water if the pan becomes too dry is an option.

Step 5:

Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute, or until the garlic is aromatic and tender. Return the sausages to the pan and cover them with a lid.

Step 6:

Add a large spoon of balsamic vinegar. Continue to simmer, stirring constantly, until the mixture is well warmed and well mixed, approximately 2 minutes more than you think it should take.

Step 7:

Prepare a plate by arranging the sausages, peppers, and onions. And serve with a side of mustard and, if preferred, toasted bread or rolls on the side.
