Sausages and sweet peppers

Serves 4

500g pork sausages, cut into 1 cm-thick slices
1 red onion, thinly sliced

Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium to high heat.
Add oil and fry sausage pieces until cooked and well coloured.
Remove sausages, set aside and leave sausage fat in the pan.
Add extra oil if necessary and sauté onion and garlic until soft with very little colour.
Add capsicums, oregano, white wine and tomatoes.
Cook until capsicums are tender and stir in tomato paste.
Return sausages to the pan and warm through.
