Cabbage Ribbons with Sausage and Thyme Marinara Sauce
1/2lbhot Italian sausage
1/2head of cabbagesliced into thin ribbons
2tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
2large cloves of garlicminced
1/2teaspoonred pepper flakes
1/2teaspoondried thyme or 1/2 tablespoon of fresh thyme
28ouncecan of crushed tomatoesno additional seasonings added
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook and crumble the sausage. Add the cabbage to the skillet, toss to combine and splash just a bit of water onto it, maybe 1-2 tablespoons. Cover with lid and let cook over medium high heat for about 5 minutes, until it is just barely wilted.
While the sausage and cabbage are cooking, start the sauce. This recipe will make TWICE the amount of sauce you will need. Save the extra sauce to use later. In a cold saucepan, combine the oil, garlic, salt, pepper flakes and thyme. Turn on the heat to medium and saute just until fragrant. This should take less than a minute. Add the tomatoes and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the cabbage is warm and barely softened, top individual servings with the marinara sauce and toss to combine. Enjoy!
