Pricking the sausages and blanching them before sautéing (as we often do in Italy), reduces the amount of fat.
|2||Italian sausages||150 g|
|1 tbsp||olive oil||15 mL|
|1 clove||garlic, crushed|
|1 sprig||rosemary, fresh||5 g|
|1/3 cup||My Mother's Tomato Sauce||85 mL|
|1 pinch||salt [optional]||0.1 g|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
- Prick through the skin of the sausages in several spots using a fork. Put the sausages in a saucepan, cover them with water then bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 5 min. Take the sausages out of the water, pat them dry, then cut each sausage into 3 or 4 pieces.
- Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and rosemary sprig, then sauté until the oil becomes perfumed with the garlic and rosemary aroma, 3 to 4 min. Pay attention not to let them burn.
- Add the sausages, then sauté until they become lightly coloured, 2 to 3 min. Turn them a few times while cooking. Add the tomato sauce then cook 8-10 min over medium heat, tossing occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
These sausages may be served on rice, pasta, couscous or bread.
