Another recipe from Rachael Ray’s 30-Minute Comfort Foods. I thought it looked a little weird as I am not one to normally eat Italian sausage without any beef to cut it. Nor do I eat a lot of giardiniera though in this recipe it worked well. It was a very moist sandwich and the hubs and I both enjoyed it.
- 4 sweet Italian sausage patties (1/4 lb each)
- 12 oz giardiniera, drained
- Handful fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tomato, halved, seeded and cut thin
- 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
- Olive Oil
- Splash red wine vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Crusty rolls, split
Heat a skillet over medium-high, Place patties on hot pan and cook for 6 minutes on each side.
Combine giardinieara and parsley in a food processor and pulse into a fine relish.
Toll tomatoes and onions with a little oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble, coast bottom of roll with relish. Top with sausage patty, spinach and tomato/onion slices.
