This is a classic summer dish that I keep making well into October as the produce and the weather is still so summery. A little bit of sausage goes a long way in persuading my kids to happily down this trayful of veggie goodness. As…
- 4 fresh handmade sausages /500 gr. approx.
- 2 onions, sliced
- 3 peppers in strips
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2 tbsps vinegar
- 400 gr. tomato, grated
- 400 gr. penne
Saute the sausages and once they have rendered a little fat, add the onions and peppers. When soft, add the garlic, stir well and add the vinegar. Once it evaporates, add the tomato and let it simmer over a low heat for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the penne in plenty of salted water, strain and add to the sauce. Simmer for 2 more minutes and serve.
The secret to making this dish delicious is the very good quality of the sausage. I use fresh, traditionally handmade ones, encased in natural intestine, containing only meat and spices. You can find it here.
