Recipe for Italian Sausages

Sausage and Cheese Sellers Giclee Print

This is for normal Italian sausages, if you buy hotter ones, I suggest making chilli out of it, unless you like really hot things. This reicpe is a family favourite from AWW Italian Cookbook no.2

Fettuccine with Italian Sausage and Olives

500g fettuccine pasta
500g Italian-style sausages
2 tablespoons olive oil
150g mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
100g large green olives, seeded, sliced
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
300ml cream

Add pasta to large pan of boiling water, boil, uncovered, until just tender, drain well. Cook sausages in dry pan over medium heat, turning regularly, about 10 minutes or until browned and cooked through; drain on absorbent paper. Cut sausages into 1cm slices.

Heat oil in pan, add mushrooms and garlic, cook, stirring, about 2 minutes or until mushrooms are soft. Stir in sausages, olives, rind, juice, parsley and cream, simmer, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until reduced by one-third. Stir in pasta, cook, stirring, 3 minutes or until pasta is heated through. Serves 4.

Success from last week:

Chicken Coleslaw Very excited about this. Thought it would be plain. It is like getting a twister at KFC.
Black-eyed Bean & Vegetable Soup this soup is terrific. It reminds me of a soup we used to make years ago from the Italian Soup mix packet. I made it from the water of boiled silverside with added spices. This soup has the spice, mine balls, but this powdered. Very clever.
Braised Pork with Fennel & Borlotti Beans an old-fashioned dish that is low-fat
