Notes

  • Cook's Tip #1:  To keep the meat inside the sausage intact, make sure you use a sharp knife when cutting them.
  • Cook's Tip #2:  Chop the vegetables in identical sizes; it helps in cooking them at the same amount of time.
  • Cook's Tip #3:  Do not hesitate to add more stock, or water, if you want more liquid in your sausage stew.
  • Cook's Tip #4:  Remember to taste and adjust seasoning before adding the cornstarch mix.
  • Variation #1:  Herbs - you can add other herbs if you like.  Parsley and rosemary are both great with this sausage stew with vegetables.
  • Variation #2:  Other vegetables - I add green peas or green beans sometimes, and I've always liked the result; so, do not hesitate to play around with your favorite vegetables.
  • Variation #3:  Stock - both chicken and vegetable stock will work excellently with this Italian sausage stew recipe.
