You'll find uncooked Italian sausage in the fresh meat or butcher's case in the grocery store. Check the sell-by date stamped on the package. "Sweet" Italian sausage has fresh basil added. "Hot" is made with crushed red pepper and is definitely intense. You may try either of these in this recipe. Use fresh sausage within 3 days of purchase, or freeze for up to 30 days.

How to Make It

Step 1

Drain tomatoes, reserving juice; set tomatoes aside.

Step 2

Brown sausage links in a nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Add reserved tomato juice and 1 cup water; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, turning occasionally, 20 to 25 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

Step 3

Sauté peppers and onion in hot oil in another large nonstick skillet 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in tomatoes; cook until thoroughly heated. Remove sausage links from skillet, discarding liquid; cut links into bite-size pieces. Serve sausage over Parmesan Cheese Grits; top evenly with pepper mixture. Garnish, if desired.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Johnsonville Sweet Italian Links.

This was a good sausage recipe with a bit of a kick to it. I used both sweet and italian sausage links. I served it with spaghetti and my family loved it.
