How to Make It

  1. Assemble and attach KitchenAid® Food Grinder attachment to the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer. Use the coarse grinding plate, turn to Speed 4 and grind pork and 2 cloves garlic. Add parsley, red pepper, fennel seed, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 cup wine; mix well.

    Remove coarse grinding plate and knife from Food Grinder. Assemble and attach the KitchenAid® Sausage Stuffer attachment. Grease Stuffer with shortening and slide casing on tightly. Tie off end of casing. Turn to Speed 4 and stuff pork mixture into casings. Twist sausage into 12 links and set aside.

    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add green pepper, onion and garlic and saute 5 minutes. Add remaining salt, wine, olive oil and basil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

    Add sausages to pan and cook until done; drain fat. Add pepper and onion mixture to cooked sausages and stir gently. Serve immediately over hot pasta.

    Note: Omit crushed red pepper to make mild sausage.
