Sausage and Potatoes

Again tonight we have a recipe from La Cucina, The Regional Cooking of Italy cookbook. This recipe comes from the Calabria region tonight we had Salsiccia E Patate, Sausage and Potatoes. The recipe called for the sausage to be formed into the spokes of a wheel, using skewers to hold the shape. I had Chris read the recipe to get his opinion and he agreed that the skewers could be skipped. So I cut the sausage into small pieces. The simplicity of this recipe and others from the book is amazing when you taste the finished product.

1 lb. sausage

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 lb. potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes


Cut sausages into 1 inch slices. Heat olive oil in pan and add potatoes and sausages. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring from time to time with wooden spoon. Cook until sausage is cooked through. Season with pepper.

This was delicious. I loved the fried potatoes. Had some Italian bread with it and a bit of the stuffed bread leftover from last night.
