In tribute to the men in his life, Fabio makes a peasant meal fit for a king: spiced-up sausages, topped with his super simple marinara sauce.

Tips:

  • Sausage 101: Fabio explains how to choose the best sausage for your needs, from the type of meat to casings. For Fabio, Pork is better because it has a higher fat content so the sausages stay crisp but juicy.
  • Natural casings add flavor and crunch, but any casing's job is to keep the meat in shape and serve as a "juice jail."
  • Cook low and slow to keep things juicy, with a fair amount of moisture.
