Italian Sausage with Sauteed Vegetables and Pasta

I love this meal, either over polenta or with pasta, its really easy and yummy, I even had the leftovers with homemade bread oh that was divine, great to mop up the sauce!

First get a good quality Italian sausage from a butcher, I got mine from The Fresh Market.

  • 3 big sweet Italian sausages - I used sweet or spicy are also good.
  • 2 leeks chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 4 tomatoes chopped
  • Italian herbs
  • some frozen peas and snap peas, or any veg in the fridge!
  • one celery chopped
  • 1/2 eggplant chopped
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  1. saute the leeks, onion, garlic, celery for 3 minutes then add the sliced sausage and stir well.
  2. add the herbs, eggplant, tomato and peas and simmer for 20-25 minutes until cooked and the tomatoes have reduced down into a lovely sauce.
  3. add the snap peas for a few minutes and serve over any desired pasta.
Stay tuned tomorrow I found an Icelandic blogger and he is sharing an Icelandic dessert recipe!
