Best Idea for a quick Sunday meal: Spetzofai

The very first time I tried this dish I was on a little mountain village in Pylio that’s renowed for spetzofai. I fell immediately crazy in love with it!! It’s comfort food at its best!! And if you know me, you know I hold a special place in my heart for comfort food, diet or no diet.

Plus it’s super easy. Here’s what you’ll need for about 4 people:DSC03592

4 country sausages

an array of peppers (1 red, 1 orange/yellow, 1 green)

1 onion

2 cloves of garlic

1 glass of red wine

1 cup of water

1 bay leaf

a pinch of paprika

1 tbsp. of tomato puree

1 can of chopped tomatoes

4-5 tbsps. of olive oil

1 tsp. of sugar

salt and pepper

First, slice the sausages and sautee them in 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Set them aside.

Next, chop up the onions and peppers and garlic and sautee them as well in the same pan with the rest of the olive oil along with the puree.

Reduce with the wine, then add the water, chopped tomatoes and the herbs and spices. Sautee for 25-30 minutes and add the sausages. I served this with basmati and it was just lovely! The kiddos loved it! I need to revisit Pylio 🙂DSC03596
