DIY: A Recipe for Pilio Sausage and Peppers

Emblematic of Pilio's meze-oriented cuisine with flavorful dishes that pair well with tsipouro, this sausage, pepper and tomato dish is also easy to make.


Preparation & Cooking time: 20 min + 40 min

Serves: 3-4

Preparation

In a large frying pan, cook the peppers over medium heat in 1 1/2cm of olive oil for around 6-7 minutes, until golden.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain excess fat using a paper towel.

 

Place the sausage slices in the pan and sauté lightly, without letting them turn brown, and then remove from heat.

In a separate pan (a deep frying pan or wide saucepan), simmer the tomato together with the tomato paste in 2 tbsp of olive oil until it reduces by half and then add in the peppers and the sausage.

Cook until the sauce thickens to a creamy texture.

Season with salt and pepper and serve with thick slices of rustic bread.
