Impromptu dinner using a link of hot Italian sausage and some other stuff

leave a comment »

The sausage I get is 5 links per pound, so one link is 0.2 lbs. This is regular pork sausage.

1 piece thick bacon cut into chunks

I rendered that in my small sauté pan (8″, I think), then added the 0.2 lbs hot Italian sausage cut into chunks. After it browned and the bacon was also browned, I added

1 large shallot minced
5 garlic cloves minced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
8-10 Kalamata olives, halved
1 tsp salt
About 1.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper

I cooked that for a while, then added

1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced
1 lemon diced and quick “preserved” a la Mark Bittman*
dash of Worcestershire

Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Very tasty.



Quick “preserved” lemons

Wash 1 lemon, cut off and discard ends, then dice the rest: cut into slabs and cut those into squares.

Put cut-up lemon in a small bowl, add:

3/4 tsp salt
1.5 tsp sugar

Stir and let sit 20 minutes. (I mince the garlic at this time so it also can sit for a while.)
