Italian sausage(store bought) + pasta

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Got a good deal on a package of sausage (Fletchers Tuscan Italian) the other day, so I did this after work:  

Into the CSE set to 250, 1-1/'2 oz apple chips. and a head of garlic (didn't do a thing to it, just threw it in there) 101909_1096.jpg

my notes say I only had them in there about 45 min. seems fast, but that's what I wrote...

The sausage is looking great. The garlic is perfect - I wasn't going for fully roasted, just tender and smoky.

In a large saute pan, I put in about 2 Tbsp OO, and about half the head of garlic, smashed and finely chopped. Let that flavor the oil a bit, then added a large can of diced tomatoes in juice and simmered to cook out about half the liquids.  When it had the thickness I wanted, I added leftover marinara (from meatloaf the other night), sauteed mushrooms (from steaks last night), sliced sausage, about 1/2 bunch chopped fresh parsley, just a bit of Italian seasoning (trader joe's), some salt and pepper.

low simmer, covered, to get all the flavors mingling well, until the pasta is ready.

I love my charcoal but learning the watt burner techniques slowly.

That looks and sounds awesome. I would have had to add me some Basil cause I have it fresh outside my door. The combos are great. I am going to smoke some parmesan in a couple weeks to see what that does to it too.  LOOKING GOOD

Looks Great!

 

Once a week we take my homemade Italian Sausage and make spaghetti.

 

Make your own and save a few bucks.
