I was trying to come up with something quick to make for dinner, and thought sliced sausage with some pasta would do it. Not really sure what I was thinking when I thought I could cut raw sausage into slices, but obviously, it did not work. Instead of stopping though, I decided just to go with it, and squeezed out the sausage from the casings.
My homemade sauce, straight from the freezer. Back when I made the giant pot, I had 3 of these for the freezer. I am now down to one.
On a side note: I made this again, but added zucchini and mushrooms. Also, I cooked the sausages whole and then sliced. Verdict: Adding veggies is good, but the sausage is better when removed from its casing. Left in slices it was too chunky, and the seasonings that are in the sausage were too concentrated in the bites with meat instead of being spread around in the whole dish. Next time I will look for it sold in bulk, and skip the casing altogether.
