A classic chili with Italian overtones. A blend of classic chili ingredients is complemented by mild Italian sausage and bell pepper. It’s a warm and hearty dish for a chilly winter’s day.
This sauce, which works in all manner of Italian dishes calling for red sauce, blends thinking of Sicilian and Northern Italian former in-laws. It’s loaded with meats, but you can reserve sauce without meat, too. I’ve thrown in ideas for a vegetarian, too. Feeds a small army. Freezes well.
