Sausages with Ratatouille
The ratatouille is also delicious served with broiled or grilled lamb chops that have been rubbed with garlic and olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper.
- 4 large or 8 small smoked sausages, such as kielbasa
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 4 cups ratatouille (see related recipe at left)
Cook the sausages
Slit each sausage diagonally several times on each side. In a fry pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the sausages and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, 8 to 12 minutes total.
Warm the ratatouille
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, warm the ratatouille, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching, until hot, 8 to 10 minutes. Divide the ratatouille and sausages among 4 plates and serve immediately. Serves 4.
