Salcicce Con I Broccoli


2 lbs. fresh sweet pork sausages
1 small peperoncino
6 lbs. bitter broccoli
6 tbs. olive oil
4 cloves garlic

How to make the Salcicce Con I Broccoli – Fresh Sausages with Bitter Broccoli:

Prick the sausages with a fork so they don’t burst while cooking. Heat 1 tbs. olive oil and saute the sausages over a medium flame. When they get a color, add 1/2 cup of water and continue to cook for 12 mins. Remove from heat and set aside. Clean the broccoli discarding the stems and the larger leaves (wash thoroughly but do not drip dry).

Heat the remainder of the oil in a. large casserole. Add the garlic and peperoncino. Remove garlic when brown and add bitter broccoli. Saute over medium heat, for 20 mins. with the casserole covered, stirring occasionally. Add the sausages and cook for another 5 mins. with the pot uncovered. Remove from heat and serve.
