Sausage and potatoes alla contadina

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ pounds Fresh Homemade Sausage; see * Note
(or Italian style from your butcher)
4 tablespoons Virgin olive oil
4 Russet potatoes; scrubbed, skin on,
Cut 1" cubes; in cold water to cover
2 larges Spanish onions; cut 1" cubes
2 Dried hot chilies -; (abt 2" to 3" long)
2 tablespoons Finely-chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 Garlic head; cloves removed
But not peeled
6 ounces Dry white wine

* Note: See the "Fresh Homemade Sausage" recipe which is included in this collection.

Pre-heat your broiler and oven to 400 degrees. Prick the sausages all over with a pin and place them in a roasting pan. Place them under a broiler and cook for 3 minutes. Turn the sausages over and continue to cook for another three minutes. Remove from the broiler and drain all the fat. Set aside. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil until just smoking. Drain the potatoes well and place them in a hot pan. Add the onions and saute until they are both lightly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the chilies, rosemary, whole garlic cloves and white wine. Saute one minute more, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen the browned bits. Place the sausage on top of the potatoes and place in hot oven. Roast the mixture until the potatoes are very tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove and serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 servings.
