  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 thinly sliced, peeled small yellow onion
  • 1 thinly sliced, peeled carrot
  • 1 thinly sliced celery stalk
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 14 small savoy cabbage, shredded
  • 4 sweet Italian sausages
  • 1 cup tocai or other dry white Friuli wine


Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, cook for 2 minutes, then remove and discard.

Step 2

Add yellow onion, carrot, celery. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook until vegetables are soft, 5-10 minutes. Add shredded cabbage to skillet and cook until wilted.

Step 3

Add Italian sausages and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add tocai, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover, increase heat to medium, and cook until liquid has been absorbed. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Step 4

Serve with soft Polente or, if you wish, with sliced boiled potatoes.
