Spicy Italian Sausage with Carrots and Onions
1 pound spicy Italian sausage (I prefer fresh from the butcher.)
1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced on the diagonal
1 large red onion, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, if desired
In a large, heavy, non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add all ingredients and let brown, without stirring, for approximately three to five minutes. Stir, toss and continue to cook until the onions are translucent, the sausage is cooked through and the carrots have begun to caramelize...about 15 minutes total. Add crushed red pepper flakes and serve immediately. Makes for a great fall meal with a crisp green salad on the side. Serve over pasta or rice, if desired. Serves 4.
