I've been using this recipe for over 20 years, ever since I moved to South Carolina. It can be adjusted to serve any number. Allow 2 tablespoons of seasoning per quart of water. If you cannot find hot smoked sausage, use another smoked sausage such as kielbasa and add crushed hot red pepper to the pot.
The secret ingredient which makes this cacciatore stand out is pancetta, an Italian bacon. The pancetta gives the sauce richness and body. Fresh basil leaves and baby portobello mushrooms make it special.
Sauteed onion, garlic and mushrooms are seasoned with oregano, basil, parsley and flavorful strips of ham. A sweet, rich mix of ready-made marinara sauce and heavy cream gives this dish its rose color. Serve over hot pasta and enjoy every luscious bite.
For a fun and flavorful baked fiesta, cook ground beef and chopped onions with tomato soup, diced tomatoes and taco seasoning mix. Add cooked macaroni and bake with a scrumptious topping of corn chips, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese!
This is an awesome recipe for banana peppers stuffed with an Italian sausage mixture and baked in a delicious tomato sauce. We get requests to make them for the guys my husband works with all the time.
Two things are great about this chicken salad. - the texture and the mayonnaise/coleslaw dressing with its splash of lemon. Everything goes into the food processor and when it emerges, it only needs a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Make tea sandwiches, stuff celery or pile on fresh greens.
