This recipe was me trying to figure out the cheapest meal possible. I made it kind of like how I make chili but with different seasonings and I’m calling it Ratatouille because I love that word and that movie. Lol! And because I just damn well do as I please.
I purchased my sweet Italian sausage from my local butcher who only uses locally sourced meats free from hormones, antibiotics, blah blah blah. You know the story.
It came out pretty delicious. I was nervous about this one sucking but it’s full of Italian flavors! Yum!
