Peppers and sausage pasta sauce

I think I have an absolute crush on the flavor of softened, sweet red bell peppers in pasta sauce. Add to this some spicy Italian sausage, and I'm in food bliss.

1 large red bell pepper
1 yellow onion
2 Italian sausages
1 jar marinara sauce
1 clove garlic
0.5 tsp oregano
0.5 tsp pepper flakes
1 tbsp olive oil  

Slice the pepper and onion. Cook in the olive oil until softened. Squeeze out the sausage from its skin and add little sausage balls to the pan. Cook without crushing them up. 

Add the minced garlic and the other spices. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the tomato sauce, rinse the jar with half a cup of water and add to the sauce. Simmer for about 20 minutes, until desired thickness is reached and flavors are nicely combined.
