    Heat the oil in a large shallow pot and brown the sausage. Remove the sausage from the pot and set aside drain a portion of the fat that may have accumulated. In the same pot, add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes, or until translucent but not browned. Stir in the paprika, red pepper, oregano, salt and black pepper sauté for 1 minute. Add the wine and tomatoes bring the liquid to a boil, then lower it to a simmer. Add the sausage back to the pot and simmer it for 5 minutes.
