Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to Broil.

Step 2

Cut a deep slice down one side of sausages lengthwise using a sharp meat knife.

Step 3

Face sausages slit side down on top of broiler pan. Broil in oven approx 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 4

Fill a stovetop pot with water. Cover and bring to a boil.

Step 5

When timer rings for sausages, remove from oven and drain any grease from the bottom of the broiler pan. Reset oven to 375 F (190 C).

Step 6

Transfer sausages to the bottom tray of broiler pan and pour sauce over top. Bake, turning sausage occasionally (15 minutes).

Step 7

Meanwhile…

Step 8

Prepare salad. (I like to rinse mine in a salad spinner and spin dry before placing on the plates or in a bowl.) Segment the mandarins. The more toppings you have the less dressing you will need.
Serve dressing after toppings.

Step 9

When timer rings for pasta, rinse and toss with a little olive oil and basil if you like.
