Several weeks ago Paul and I started mixing up the ground pork in to various sausage mixtures. And then his brother came in for a visit so I had them stuff the sausage mixes into casings so we could actually eat them like "proper" sausages. We sampled some that day, of course, but the rest went into the freezer for future meals.
Yesterday morning I took out a five pack hank of Italian sausage to defrost and last night I broiled them and then cut up some fresh green peppers (thanks, Ma!), onions, garlic, opened a can of diced tomatoes (yes, I know I should have fresh but mine aren't putt'n out yet and I'm not buying grocery store ones), grabbed some fresh oregano, chives and basil from my herb garden and sauteed everything together. Plopped the cooked sausages into the vegetable mixture to warm it up and Ta Da!
It would have gone great with some fresh Italian bread with olive oil, but alas, I was forgot until it was too late. Next time.
Anyways, it really was a simple, but great supper. And if I weren't such a lazy sloth of a woman, all those fixings could have come right from the garden. But still, everything but the onions (Georgia Vidalia....yum!!), the garlic (not sure from where) and the salt were local.
Are you eating out of your garden yet?
