The Ultimate Comfort Food: Slow Cooker Sunday Gravy

A sacred Italian-American institution, Sunday gravy is a meat-forward, all-day-simmered meal, with as many variations as there are Italian families. My version incorporates flank steak braciole, Italian sausage, tender meatballs, and pork ribs along with onions, carrots, celery, and garlic, all simmered together in a rich red sauce. The slow cooker makes easy work of what once took hours of stove-side babysitting with a wooden spoon. More

Give Your Burgers an Italian Twist With These Pepper-Crusted, Mozzarella-Stuffed Sausage Patties

Homemade Italian sausage is formed into patties and stuffed with nuggets of mozzarella cheese. Then, the burgers are heavily pepper-crusted on the rims and finished with a dollop of creamy ricotta, red sauce, and fresh basil. Perhaps best of all, though, is the garnish of vinegar peppers that roast in the oven (or, alternately, cook in a tin right on the grill). More

Sunday Supper: Baked Shells With Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce and Italian Sausage

A base of roasted red pepper cream sauce swaths pre-cooked, medium-sized pasta shells. I like the sauce smooth and silky, so I purée the roasted pepper mixture before adding a combination of heavy cream and half-and-half, along with three cheeses: ricotta, Fontina, and Asiago. Italian sausage, garlic, and onions, boost the sauce with extra flavor. More

It's All in the Char: Orange and Leek Loukaniko (Greek Sausage)

While loukaniko can refer to any number of sausages in Greek, it's the orange-spiced version that's most associated with the name, and for good reason. The citrus gives these links a distinctive, bright flavor that gains depth from a mix of herbs, spices, and leeks, all of which come together to create a fresh-tasting sausage that fits seamlessly into a summer cookout.

Grilled Bratwurst, Beer, and Cheddar Soup

Rich, hot beer-cheese soup may not sound like ideal summer fare, but this version is made with a warm-weather cookout star—smoky grilled brats—that transform it into a dish that's seasonally appropriate. Flavored with cheddar and spiked with a bit of Velveeta for improved texture, it's my go-to meal when I want a taste of my Midwestern roots. More

Coq au Vin With Veal Sausage, Thyme, and Merlot From 'Joy of Kosher'

Coq au vin was one of the first dishes that Jamie Geller learned to cook. As she tells it, her mother-in-law taught her how to gently simmer chicken in red wine sauce shortly after her wedding. The recipe in her new cookbook, Joy of Kosher, is a version of that dish—the chicken and red wine remain the same, but Geller has added slices of flavorful veal (or chicken) sausage to the mix. More
