This can feed an army and its a very easy 1 pot meal for a crowd. You can scale this recipe down to just a few sausages and a bottle of Pace salsa, but I gotta go big! I get 12-15 people every Sunday for football and we eat alot!
30 mixed brats and mild Italian sausages
3 large bottles med. salsa
2 large bottle hot picante
diced peppers (yellow, red and orange)
1 large can diced tomatos
2 large onions diced
10 cloves garlic minced
2 cartons button mushrooms halved
S & P to taste
1/2 cup red wine
In a large pot, put evry thing but the sausage and wine and simmer.
Brown sausages in batches for 5 0r 6 minutes per side, about half way cooked, nice and brown outside but still red in the middle. As the next batch browns, cut up the browned sausage into bite sized pieces and add to the big pot.
After browning is done, deglaze the pan with the wine until sludgy about 5-6 minutes and add to the big pot.
Let that simmer for about 2.5 hours, uncovered, stirring often.
We served with Italian bread and fusili pasta.
Bubbling for hours
I forgot to take a pic when it was served but we had to make some take-out trays!
