Pork Recipes


            5 tablespoons Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
            8 Italian-style sausages, hot or sweet
            2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
            2 cloves garlic, chopped
            Salt to taste
            Freshly ground black pepper to taste
            1½ pounds spinach, washed and stems trimmed
            1 cup tomato sauce
            ½ cup scallions, thinly sliced
            2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

Serves 4

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Coat a large baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and arrange the sausages on the dish. Cook the sausages in the oven for 30 minutes or until nicely browned and no longer pink inside. Meanwhile prepare the spinach.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over moderate heat. Add the yellow onions and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Sauté the onions until limp, then cover loosely with foil. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally; until the onions are golden and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Increase the heat to moderately high and add the spinach, sautéing until the spinach is wilted. Stir in the tomato sauce, and simmer for 5 minutes.

When the sausages are done, spread the spinach mixture on a warmed serving platter and arrange the sausages on top. Sprinkle with the green onions and parsley and serve.
