Eat Italian! Win FREE Italian Sausage, Coupons, Recipe Booklets

One of my favorite things to do is eat.
Yep.
Especially Italian style foods.

Especially with my friends.

This past weekend I had the priviledge of cooking up a bunch of Italian favorites for my friends using Johnsonville Italian Sausage. I made Italian Sausage Lasagna, Italian Sausage Rigatoni, Italian Sausage Vodka & Cream Sauce on low carb shirataki noodles, Italian Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, and for dessert, Low Carb Key Lime Pie. Plus we had plain ol' cooked sausage.

I enjoyed creating these dishes almost as much as eating them. I didn't try everything I cooked because I limit my carbs, but what I did eat I liked, and I received compliments on the other things, so I suppose they also turned out well.
I had never cooked with Italian Sausage before. Any recipe that called for sausage - I just used regular sausage, either bulk or link. This was a first for me and I can say that it won't be my last time. I liked the special Italian flavor that it gave my foods. It totally changed the flavor of the food, giving authenticity to the dishes. For example, anytime I've ever made lasagna I've used ground beef. I'd never even thought of using Italian sausage. What a difference swapping out the beef for the Italian sausage made!

In egg bakes is an awesome idea, Nickolay! I'll give that a try.

I eat Johnsonville pretty regularly, so I am sure I have had the italian version. My wife usually cooks. I just eat what she puts on the plate.

I do not think I have ever tried the Italian but I eat the brats fairly regularly.

Debbie C said...

No, not the Italian, yet, but I love their New Orleans Spicy Smoked Sausage. It's fabulous.

Saw you on SITS today! It's nice to meet you!! :)

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

Happy SITS Day! When I lived up north in an Italian-american mecca, I didn't use Johnsonville because we had so many local options. Now that I'm down south, it's my go-to sausage. Our options are getting better, but they still aren't many!

Susan in the Boonies said...

Hi, Jean! I'm here from the SITS girls, for your SITS day. Looking forward to poking around your blog a bit.

Christa aka The BabbyMama said...

Just stopping by from SITS to say HI! :)

jamie said...

Lovely!

Marge said...

I use sausage (minus the casings) all the time... it lends an excellent flavour to any dish that you would normally use ground beef in.

Congratulations on your SITS day!

Eva Gallant said...

Congrats on your SITS day. Enjoy the spotlight. I love Italian sausage and often use it in spaghetti sauce.

Jester Queen said...

Happy SITS day! Looks like I missed a tasty giveaway. Love the pics. I had never thought to try sausage in lasagna either. It sounds splended

Denise Malloy said...

Yum! It's the best!

mommainthelou said...

I had actually never thought of using sausage instead of ground beef in lasagna! Interesting!

Julie Marie said...
