  • Pyrex 3 Quart Glass Oblong Baking Dish, 8.9 Inch X 13.2 Inch
  • Nylon-tipped tongs


  • 4 links chicken sausage I get mine from behind the counter at my local Whole Foods. It's the best I've found!!! They have mild or spicy available. I buy mild but you may choose to buy spicy! If you don't have a Whole Foods nearby, I've used Jenny-O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and it was a fine alternative.
  • 4 large peppers, sliced into strips yellow and orange are my favorite colors to use!
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms I buy them pre-sliced in the box.
  • 1/2 sweet onion, sliced into strips
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In your pyrex, add 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to the bottom of the dish
  • Throw your sliced veggies {peppers, mushrooms, and onions} into your pyrex dish
  • Using a very sharp knife, slice your RAW chicken sausage into 4-5 chunks. This is not the easiest and can be messy but try and keep the sausage into medium-sized chunks even if the casing doesn't hold together. Throw the sausage into your dish so they are not touching and wash your hands!
  • Add your white wine + garlic into the dish and then with a pair of nylon-tipped tongs, mix everything well! Keep sausage spread out from each other as best you can.
  • Top with the last two tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Bake in the oven for 45 min, mixing and turning everything in the dish half-way through.


Prep with your partner! One of you can cut the veggies, another one of you can cut the raw chicken sausage. And definitely drink wine during the entire process. Do I even need to say that thought?!
