Farmshare and sausage thing

This is the elegant name of the dish I cooked today.  Still very shaken up from the collision yesterday, waiting on the adjuster, got the police report number, all that. Also grappling with other bad news of relative's serious illness, but I haven't blogged about that because it's not my news to discuss.

Anyway, I thought, since among all the excitement yesterday I did pick up my farmshare, which had zucchini, corn, eggplant (three beauties which I gave to a friend since I can't digest them), yellow squash, sweet peppers and bell pepper, this called for something to cook that might use a lot of them and then freeze the results.

So this is what happened: Italian hot sausage, a first for me, the non meat person, and cubed zucchini, squash, peppers, garlic, Worcestershire, can of tomato chunks, tomatoes not in yet at the farm, sausage cooked in olive oil till done, drained,then the rest added bit by bit, so the veggies are all tender but not overdone.  It worked well, and I have four containers for the freezer to take out when I'm in the mood to eat but not cook.

I can probably blend a container, too, removing the sausage first, then add it back in, like an interesting soup.

Oh, and I'm entertaining good names for this recipe, if anyone wants to try naming it.


  1. Call it 'Delicious'! I love everything about it. Bit of crusty bread and I'm in heaven. xoxo

  2. Looks delicious, I'm sure I can smell it cooking.

  3. Yum!! This looks really delish. As for name - how about Farmshare Goodness. I know - how original can you get?!!

  4. Add some beans, Romano or White Kidney and you have a cassoulet. Maybe some more tomato juice and cooked pasta - minnestrone soup. You're brave eating hot Italian sausage - I buy mild, peel off the skin and bake them on parchment, slice and freeze, adding a handful here and there to dishes such as you've created. How about "Boudia Italiano" for the name of the dish? J in Cowtown
