Salsiccia alla Caponata | Grilled Italian Sausage with Caponata

Growing up in an Italian family, there was always something cooking or baking in the kitchen. I remember so many mornings waking up to the waft of sausage and peppers. My Grandmother would fry them in a pan, crack an egg over it, and cook it for a few minutes. I like grilling spicy sausage and covering them in Caponata, a tomato-eggplant mix. I always serve homemade hot Giardiniera on the side for an extra kick of spiciness. A glass of Centanni Pecorino is a beautiful wine to enjoy with this dish.


To make this vegan-friendly, substitute the sausage with Beyond Meat Spicy Italian Sausage.

1 pound Spicy Italian Sausage, Pork, Chicken or Turkey

1 Caponata Recipe

1 Homemade Giardiniera Recipe


Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill the sausages until fully cooked, about 10 minutes on each side with the lid closed. Transfer the sausages to a large platter. Cover the sausages with the Caponata. Serve with homemade Giardiniera, Calabrian chili sauce, crusty Italian bread, and a simple salad. Do not forget the vino! And a nice chilled glass of Centanni Pecorino compliments this spiciness of this dish.
