the brats in beer (instead of water) on the stovetop
according to the package directions. Cut into ~1/4 inch
slices. Cut up all veggies and herbs ready to cook.
Have a serving bowl ready in which to mix the final
dish. Start cooking the pasta. Heat the olive oil in
a large skillet over medium high heat. Stir in the sausage,
garlic, and onions and cook for 2-3 minutes until the
sausage is starting to brown. Add in zucchini, roasted
pepper, broccoli and continue cooking, stirring occasionally,
for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the wine and stock; bring to
boil. Lower heat to medium; simmer until slightly reduced.
Toss the cooked pasta, basil, and cheese with the veggies,
broth, and bratwurst. Season to taste with salt and
4 generously. Serve with a mixed green salad and warm
whole wheat bread for a complete meal.
Red Peppers: (Can
use any color of peppers with this technique) Char
the pepper over an open flame on your stovetop or under
a hot broiler. Place peppers in a plastic or paper bag
to sweat for 10-15 minutes. Remove from bag; scrape
off the skin and seeds.
