Homemade Hot Italian Sausage
- Be careful with the wine quantity if you resize down. Also, its good with dried herbs, of course, but far better with fresh garlic cloves and parsley. My wife and I were once in a hurry making a pound of it for a quick Saturday lunch with Italian bread slices and red wine and I didn't take a minute to toast the fennel seeds on the stovetop; big difference. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra 2 or 3 minutes there even if you substitute a tablespoon or so of powdered garlic for the cloves and use the ever handy dried parley flakes.
