Ready In:




  • Trim the leeks just above the white part of the stalk. Wash the top greens, and put them in a pot with a pinch of sea salt, the chicken stock, and 2 cups water.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes, then remove and discard the leek greens.
  • Wash and thinly slice the white part of the leeks, and add to a deep sauté pan (or small stock pot or Dutch oven) with the olive oil.
  • Cook over low heat until the leeks are translucent, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the sausage, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, until browned on all sides.
  • Add red pepper flakes, white wine, and fregula. Stir to combine, and add the hot chicken stock.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat; then reduce heat to low and simmer until the fregula is cooked through and most of the liquid is absorbed (add additional water, a few Tbsp at a time, if needed).
  • Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese, parsley, and plenty of black pepper. Serve hot or at room temperature.

However, nessesity really is the mother of invention; instead of feeling sorry for myself and my dietry limitations,,,I got creative. I am in the process of starting my own business, which initially was exclusively targeted at ceoliacs, but thanks to my new husband and his diabetes, we hope to create food that is not only gluten free and sugar free or low carb, but will also cater for those amongst us with a whatever attitude to healthy food...Yes I do have one left at home,,bring on the empty nest.</p> <p><span><span><strong>The other man in my life</strong></span></span></p> <p><img title=The src= alt=width=320 height=213 /></p>
