My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

January 9, 2016


Sausage and Escarole


Yes, the holidays are over and I can’t continue to ignore the blog. I have been cooking and baking, but not taking the time to share any of it with you. Hope you enjoyed the festivities and a belated Happy New Year one and all.

There’s something about the New Year that makes me want to clean things up, go through closets and get rid of things. I think part of this comes form my years in retail (Crate & Barrel) where as soon as Christmas was over we reworked the entire store, freshening up all the displays and sending the holiday merchandise off to the outlet locations.

Since I seem to spend most of my free time in the kitchen I decided to start there. I was on the hunt for something in the freezer the other day when I realized that I had a fair amount of items tucked away that could provide some tasty meals. Then and there I vowed to prepare meals from the freezer and the cupboard, trying to only make purchases from the farmers’ market.

I had intended to make a beef and broccoli stir fry for dinner last night when I clicked on a link on Elizabeth Minchilli’s newsletter and ended up on her video for preparing sausage and escarole. I knew there were a few Italian sausages stashed somewhere behind the all of the cookies I’ve been baking and so the dinner plans were changed.

This one dish dinner is simple to prepare and Elizabeth’s video will show you just how easy it can be.

Ingredients you’ll need:

Olive oil

Italian sausage
White wine
Golden raisins
Pine nuts
Fennel pollen
Red wine vinegar

Tonight, the stir fry!

  2. That does sound simple and rather tasty 🙂 Certainly worth a try.

  3. Great way to use up that sausage in the freezer. I know I’d love this recipe and I too, need to clean out food that’s been in the freezer for a while. (not to mention cleaning closets, but that’s another story)

  4. Oh my, but I just bet I’ve got some sausage in my freezer! And heaven only knows what else… I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a terrific new year celebration. I hope that 2016 brings all good things to you – happiness, friendship, good food, good health and wealth! Un abbraccio, ABC
