Spicy Italian Links o'Love

"They" (whomever they may be) have this advice for women dressing up for a night out on the town: take off one accessory.

Minimize, simplify, beautify: perfect!

The same applies to cooking. Especially on chilly evenings when you haven't had the foresight to awaken early, and get to stirring together a bubbling vat of animal meat, juices & veg.

*dreamy sigh for such well-spent time*

Here's a get outta jail free card, good folk. ;) This one goes quick.

Sausages & Wine

Cut the sausages into 2 cm slices. Peel the onion. Chop the onion, celery heart and carrot into small pieces. Chop the parsley and sage, peel and finely chop the garlic, grind the cloves and crumble the chilies.

Heat a thick-bottomed frying pan, brush with oil, add the sausage and fry gently to release the fat and brown on each side. Remove from the pan, and pour away the fat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan, then the chopped vegetables, and fry until lightly coloured.

Add the garlic, sage, cloves and chilli. Stir to combine. Add the drained tomatoes and the wine, and cook for 20 minutes over medium heat until thick. Return the sausages to the pan and simmer gently for a further 10 minutes. Season.
