Store brand Hot Italian Sausage (doesn't matter what kind in other words) - 1 lb is good (6 to 8 links)
garlic - 4 cloves chopped course
white onion - 1 medium size cut in half slices and broken apart
Green, Red and Yellow pepper slices - 1/2 cup
Oregano - 1 tblspoon
Red wine - 1 to 1 1/2 cups - enough to cover the sausage
Crushed Hot Pepper - enough to sprinkle over the mixture - to your own heat level
Olive Oil - to just coat the bottom of the baking pan
Parmesan cheese grated ~ 2 or 3 tblspoons
I actually saw something similar in a fantasy/sci-fi book by Stephen Burst which I decided to adapt to real life one night when wanting to do something different to Italian sausage. It is not a warm weather meal.
The beauty of this colorful meatball recipe is that it can be both a bite-size party appetizer and a hearty main dish. Tex-Mex Meatballs in Red Chile Sauce take their heat from a broiled poblano pepper, and creamy Cotija makes for perfect tacos.
