main dishes


•          8 fresh pure pork sausages

•          35 oz San Marzano dell’ Agro Sarnese – Nocerino DOP tomatoes

•          1 medium onion

•          8 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

•          salt, to taste

•          2 bay leaves

•          wild fennel seeds

•          pecorino romano cheese, to taste

•          ½ glass of red wine


Buy fresh pure pork sausages, separate them and prick the skin of each sausage all over with a fork. Peel the onion and slice it very thinly.

Sauté the onion in extra virgin olive oil in a non-stick skillet for a few minutes over a low heat until the onion is slightly golden. Then add the sausages and brown all over, turning with a wooden spoon.

When the sausages are brown, add the red wine and turn up the heat to let it evaporate. Turn the sausages often so that they are well-flavored with the wine.  

Crush the San Marzano DOP tomatoes and add to the sausages, Salt and add a pinch of pepper, the bay leaves and a few wild fennel seeds.

Mix well and cook over medium heat until the tomato sauce has thickened. Then add the chopped parsley and a sprinkling of grated pecorino romano cheese and mix well. Let the dish rest for a few minutes and then serve the sausages with the tomato sauce, piping hot.
