Red Wine-Braised Sausages

Italians serve polenta as a side, even with weekday meals. For all that Italian flair, minus the fuss, we opt for quick-cooking polenta over traditional cornmeal. In this saucy sausage dish, you can easily replace it with classic mashed potatoes.



  1. In a large skillet over high heat, brown the sausages on all sides in the oil. Add the onions and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Deglaze with the wine and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Turn the sausages and add the broth, rosemary and pepper flakes. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until the sauce reduces by three-quarters and the onions are tender. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the arugula.
  3. Delicious with Fontina Cheese Polenta.
