This is recipe that i got from Jamie Oliver cookbook . Being his recipe , i had high hopes because so far each recipes that i made from his book always turned out good .
So , from the look of it , it looks delicious and wasn’t hard to make at all . Except i forgot certain ingredients that it required , so i ended up using with whatever i have on hand . One of them was to use canned diced tomatoes , but i didn’t have it on hand and i wasn’t able to drive my car yesterday either . But i do have lots of tomatoes on hand , i ended up using fresh tomatoes and diced them . I think this shouldn’t change much taste at all in my opinion . Just like Jamie said i think as long as you use a good quality sausage , i think this dish should be good .
My family loves it , i , on the other hand , think this was just okay . It’s obviously edible , but there are other Jamie’s recipes that i prefer than this . Don’t get me wrong , they’re delicious still , it’s just not much of my preference i guess .
So here it goes ..
good quality sausage , about 6-8 links
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 stalks of celery
1 large onions
4 garlic cloves
2 red chilies
1 tbsp. smoked paprika
1 tbsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
3 cups of chicken broth
14 oz can diced tomatoes
3 tbsp. of all purpose flour
1 . Chop the vegetables roughly . , set aside .
2. Heat up olive oil in a pan , high heat , then brown the sausages on all side . Then remove , reserve about 1/4 cup of the oil from cooking the sausage in the skillet .
3. Then add the bell peppers , celery and onion , cook about 10 mins until soften . Add garlic , chilies , and smoked paprika , and cayenne pepper , salt and pepper for a minute . Then add flour , cook a minute or so . Add the chicken broth and the tomatoes . Stir until mixture gets thick and then return the sausage back into the pan , and cook on low for 15-20 minutes .
