Ingredients

  • 6 pork sausages cut into thick pieces-or go the traditional route and use some loukaniko
  • 2 red capsicums cleaned and cut into strips
  • 1 green capsicum cleaned and cut into strips
  • 2 bullhorn peppers cleaned and cut into strips
  • 1 red onion finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 400 g tomatoes tomato passata
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • ¾ cup red wine
  • 1 pinch oregano dried, preferably Greek
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to season

Instructions

  • Heat a little olive oil over a medium heat and saute the sausages until they are browned and cooked through (10-12 mins). Once browned, remove and set aside.
  • Using the same pan add a little more olive oil and add the capsicum medley along with the onions. Cook until softened-around 10 mins.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and allow to come to the boil. Season with salt and pepper, reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for 20 mins.
  • Add the sausages to the mixture-give everything a good stir and allow it to simmer for another 15-20 mins.

Notes

Serve it up with cous cous, mashed potatoes or boiled rice. Bread is a must!
