" I truly think it is best to be a robin lightly dressed concocting soup inside my nest" ~Maurice Sendak

Thrown Together

I literally threw this dish together in 5 minutes.
I wasn't sure how it would turn out, however, it turned to be a total success!
Hot or mild Italian sausages can be used.
This dish could be served over potatoes or pasta instead of rice.

This is a great weeknight meal for a family or could be served for a dinner party with crusty Calabrese bread and a hearty glass of red wine.

Who knew?

Italian Sausages over Steamed Rice

  • 1 pound of hot or mild Italian sausages sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • olive oil
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 can of tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp each of basil, oregano and minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • steamed rice
In a large deep saucepan heat the olive oil and add the onions and sausages.
Cook until onions are soft and sausages are browned and almost cooked through.
Add tomatoes, paste, garlic and spices.
Bring to a low boil and reduce heat and cover.
Cook until sausages are done and sauce has thickened.
Serve over hot steamed rice.

Wine Suggestion: Merlot
