STELLA'S HOT ITALIAN SAUSAGE

From: Ernie Ricci III - Ernie's Italian Sausage
Primary category: Entrees

From the cookbook: What Pittsburgh Eats   


Sauté sliced onions and peppers in olive oil until translucent. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
Chop and blend in a blender, 2 cans (28 ounces) of Italian plum tomatoes, one can at a time. Add whole basil to the sauce. Stir blended tomatoes into the pot of peppers and onions.
Prepare sausage - Boil sausage "RING" in large pot for approximately ten minutes and poke holes in sausage with a fork. Drain and cut the sausage into 4"pieces. Brown the sausage pieces lightly in a frying pan - then add to sauce.
Cook on medium to low heat for about an hour until the sauce acquires a "good taste." For a sweeter taste, you may add sugar to the sauce. You can also add provolone or mozzarella cheese - melted of course – to top off your sandwich on delicious Mancini Sausage rolls.

This recipe appeared in the January 29, 3006 Post-Gazette Food Section . “Pittsburgh Super Bowl Recipes” and ran in the Seattle papers. What Pittsburgh Eats is Sausage - stacked with peppers, onions, and sauce, on a great Mancini's Italian sausage bun. When the sauce starts to drip down your chin, the bun can work as a sponge so you don't lose a drop!

ingredients(s): onion, green pepper, basil, hot sausage, plum tomatoes,
