Savory Italian Sausage Stew......I love the stuff
« on: August 07, 2011, 10:17:16 AM »
I love stew so  much I've eaten it 4 times in the last 2 weeks. I've served it to a couple of guests and they were crazy about it too. It's really easy to make, extremely savory and filling. It's one of those stews that sticks with you all day and leaves a great taste in your mouth.

Ingredients;

4 servings

4 Italian sausages (hot, medium, mild...your choice)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup diced raw zucchini
1 cup diced tomato
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Directions

1- heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat
2- slice the sausage into 1/4 slices and fry till golden brown in the oil
3- toss all the rest of the ingredients except the cheese into the pot and reduce the heat to medium low.
4- cover the pot and cook 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally
5- pour into bowls and sprinkle 1/4 cup f fresh mozzarella over the top.
6- microwave for 20 seconds to melt the mozzarella
7- sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh basil over the top and serve.

Mangia Mangia!!

Sounds yummy.  What is fennel, where is it located (spice, produce?)?

Hi Amber! :)

You will be able to find fresh fennel in the produce department.
Fennel has rather large bulbs (like an onion) with thick stems and dainty needle-like leaves.
What you do today is what matters!
