Ingredients:

  • Capital Garlic Sausage
  • 2 Eggplants
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 4-6 Tomatoes
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Bell Peppers (Yellow & Orange)
  • Asparagus
  • 4-5 Cloves Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • White Wine (Chardonnay)
  • Sea Salt (or Kosher)
  • Black Pepper
  • Hot Chili Flakes (optional)
  • Fresh Basil
  • Fresh Oregano
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Dried Greek Oregano
  1. Dice all vegetables (except asparagus) into ¾” inch chunks.
  2. Sauté the veggies in olive oil one at a time (in order of hardness) in a medium pan over medium heat. Season each round of veggies with a pinch of salt and a crack of black pepper to taste. It is best to start with the Eggplant & Zucchini, then the Bell Peppers, Onion and finally Tomato. When cooking the tomato, add 4-5 cloves roughly chopped garlic & a splash of white wine to the pan. Cook until the alcohol has evaporated.
  3. As each vegetable finishes cooking, add it to a large pot over low heat. Add olive oil to keep the veggies from burning or going dry.
  4. When all the vegetables are added to the large pot, add about a third of a bottle of white wine, and two tablespoons of tomato paste. Add the chopped fresh oregano & thyme to the pot, and a pinch of dried Greek oregano. Optionally add a pinch of hot chili flakes and stir well.
  5. Let the vegetables stew in the wine/oil sauce for about 20-25 minutes over low heat. If the mixture looks too dry, add more olive oil.
  6. In the medium pan you sautéed the vegetables with, cook a handful of trimmed asparagus with olive oil over medium-low heat. Cook until fork tender.
  7. About 5 minutes before the vegetables are done stewing, lightly brown some sliced Capital Garlic Sausage in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil.
  8. In a large serving dish, layer the stewed vegetables, a sprinkle of freshly chopped basil, the grilled sausage, and top with asparagus in a crisscross fashion.
