Salsicce e Rape con Peperoni

(Sausage, Turnips and Green Chili Peppers)


4     Sausage - Chicken or Turkey
4 Lg. Turnips - Rape in Italian
6 Lg. Chiles - green & mild
3 Cloves Garlic - chopped
1/2 Cup Olive oil - extra virgin
1/2 Tsp. Pepperoncino - optional


Sauté the garlic in the olive oil until they have softened, about 1-2 minutes.  Cut the Turnips/Rape  into 1/2 inch dice.  Add them to the pan and continue cooking for about 5 minutes. Cut each sausage into 4 pieces, then add them to the garlic and turnip mixture..  Sauté on medium heat  for 4-5 minutes, mixing every minute or so.   Quarter the peppers, and de-seed them.  Add them to the sausage, salt and pepper to taste and cook everything together for another 15 minutes.

If desired, add 1/2 cup red wine about 5 minutes before the end of the cooking time, turn the heat to medium high and allow the wine to evaporate. 

Serve with plenty of crusty Italian bread.   See The Bread Page for bread recipes.
