What to Serve With Shady Brook Farms Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage?
The possibilities are endless when it comes to serving suggestions for Shady Brook Farms Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage. Here are a few of my favorites:
What’s more Italian than pasta? Toss cooked sausage links with your favorite pasta like penne, ziti, or rigatoni. Add marinara sauce, basil, oregano, and parmesan cheese for a delicious sausage bolognese. Or, for something creamy, mix in Alfredo sauce.
Top your homemade pizza with cooked and crumbled sausage, mozzarella cheese, and your favorite veggies like bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, and olives. The sweetness of the sausage pairs great with tangy tomato sauce and salty toppings.
Grilled sausage sandwiches are always a crowd-pleaser. Grill or pan-sear sausage links, then serve in sub rolls with provolone cheese, sautéed onions and peppers, and your favorite condiments like giardiniera or roasted red pepper relish. Wrap sandwiches tightly in foil to keep them warm until ready to eat.
Add cooked sausage links or crumbled sausage to soups like minestrone, lentil, or white bean to make them hearty and satisfying. Sausage also works excellently in dishes like jambalaya, gumbo, or Brunswick stew. The spicy and savory flavors of the sausage blend perfectly with the vegetables, rice, and warm spices in these comfort food classics.
