Before starting, preheat your broiler to high and wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 2: 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy! Core, then cut pepper into thin strips. Roughly chop 1 tbsp oregano leaves (dbl for 4 ppl). Peel, then cut shallot into thin strips. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots and half the peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2-3 min. Add sausage, oregano, garlic and 1/4 tsp chili flakes. (NOTE: Reference Heat Guide in Start Strong.) Cook, breaking up sausage, until no pink remains, 2-4 min.**
Add passata and broth concentrate to the sausage mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 10-12 min. Whisk together vinegar, 1 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Add remaining peppers. Toss together.
Add half the spinach to the pot with the sausage mixture. Cook, stirring often, until wilted, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve 1 cup sausage mixture (dbl for 4 ppl). On a clean work surface, arrange tortillas. Divide remaining sausage mixture between tortillas. Roll each up to close and place, seam-side down, in a lightly-oiled 8x8-inch baking dish (NOTE: Use a 9x13-inch baking dish for 4 ppl).
Top with reserved sausage mixture. Sprinkle over cheese. Broil in middle of oven, until cheese melts, 3-4 min.
Add remaining spinach to the bowl with peppers. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Divide involtini and salad between plates.
