Hi! I was craving this so badly today, I walked to the store in freezing rain and wind to get the ingredients..

Someone once told me that this recipe bore many similarities to a traditional Spanish/Italian/Mediterranean dish called paella, but I don't know about it. I guess I put it in the title to make it sound fancy, but its pretty much a recipe I pulled out of my taste buds.

If you're into spicy or italian food, you'll love this.. if you don't like spicy so much, the recipe can be altered.


3 medium-sized hot italian sausage links [I use johnsonville. whatever works]
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1/2 orange bell pepper [yellow and orange bell peppers can be hard to find.. its really good with them, but if you can't get them it doesn't really matter]
1/4 yellow or purple onion [again, it doesn't matter]
2 roma tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
red wine vinegar, to your taste [I usually use about 1/2 cup cause I really like red wine vinegar]
2 tbsp basil
2 tbsp oregano
1/3 tsp garlic
1 tbsp tapatio hot sauce, if you like it spicy
black pepper, to your taste
salt, to your taste

heat a skillet to about medium-high temp with the olive oil in it. slice up the sausage and throw it in the skillet. slice the onion into wedges and throw it in with the sausage. slice up the peppers and throw them in the skillet, I like to include the seeds as well. turn heat down to medium and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes. the sausage should be browned and maybe a little bit burned, if you like it that way. slice the tomatoes into wedges and throw them in. drizzle the whole thing with red wine vinegar. add the herbs, garlic, salt, pepper, and tapatio. cook for about 5-10 minutes, then cover and reduce to low heat. it doesn't really matter how long it cooks, as long as the sausage is cooked all the way through.

when I'm not in the mood for spicy I use mild or sweet italian sausage and stead and don't use as much tapatio or pepper. Its really good with the sweet!

this is really good served over rice or by itself with garlic bread and a side salad.

Eat anything, but if it bites back, boil it.

I was kind of surprised to not see rice in this dish. The best part of paella is the crispy rice crust on the bottom. You got the flavor base down. Perhaps instead of serving it on rice, you could add cooked rice to the flavor pan with all the good stuff in it and give it a toss through. That way, you can get those starches in the rice caramelizing and crisping adding not only another flavor dimension but also a nice texture to it. Because if you think about it, all the vegetables are approximately al dente, the sausage is squishy, the rice would be crunchy adding a contrast.

yeah, paella is a rice dish with the rice cooked with the ingredients, it's pretty specific. yours, without the rice, sounds like it's more of an italian sausage sandwich. i love those!! i used to make them all the time. yum.
