  • ½ pound small potatoes scrubbed and cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 sweet or spicy italian sausages (about 3 ounces each)
  • 1 large onion, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch-wide strips
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch-wide strips
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch-wide strips
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 1 good-sized clove)
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Put a medium pot of cold water to boil over high heat, and place a colander in the sink

  4. Meanwhile, place a large skillet over medium heat
  5. After about a minute, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and swirl to coat the pan
  6. Add the sausages (whole), and cook gently for about 15 minutes, turning them every couple of minutes, until golden brown all over
  7. The sausages are cooked through when no longer pink in the middle
  8. You can check by cutting in with a small sharp knife to be sure
  9. Transfer the cooked sausages to a cutting board, let them cool for a few minutes, and then slice them into ¼-inch-thick rounds
  10. Leave them there until needed
  11. Without cleaning it, return the skillet to medium-high heat, and immediately add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil
  12. After about 30 seconds, swirl to coat the pan
  13. Add the onion, bell peppers, and salt
  14. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the onion is golden brown
  15. Reduce the heat to medium, then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute
  16. Add the cooked potatoes and the sausage rounds, and cook, stirring often, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until everything is heated through
  17. If the mixture looks dry, stir in a tablespoon or two of water and heat briefly
  18. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper (depending on how spicy the sausage is), and serve hot or warm
