Winter Baked Beans

Winter Baked Beans

This is the winter version of the Greek classic “Gigandes” baked beans dish. Adding peppers, celeriac and good quality sausages make it a warming favourite…

Penne with peppers and sausage

Penne with peppers and sausage

  • 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.
