Italian American Basil Sausage and Peppers

We loved this Italian-American Basil Sausage and Peppers recipe we found online! We used our Il Fusti Basil Olive Oil to add some deeper flavors to an already savory meal. Would you have this for breakfast, or dinner, or both?


  • 3 tbsp. Il Fusti Basil Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • Kosher salt 
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 sweet or hot Italian sausages, sliced into quarters
  • 1/4 c. freshly sliced basil


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk together Il Fusti Basil Olive Oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, and red pepper. Add peppers and onions to the bowl and toss to coat in the oil mixture. Pour into a 9”-x-13" pan. Scatter sausage pieces on top of vegetables.

Step 2: Bake until vegetables are tender and sausage is cooked for 40 to 45 minutes. 

Step 3: Top with basil and serve hot.
