Salsichas com molho de tomate (Sausages in Tomato Sauce)

1 lb sausage (whatever your favorite is)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp crushed garlic
paprika
1 bay leaf
white wine
salt and pepper to taste
I start off by putting the olive oil in the pan, add the onions and the tomatos, garlic, salt and pepper, sprinkle with paprika, bay leaf, sliced sausage and tomato sauce.
Give it a good stir and then place the lid on it and let it simmer for about 20 minutes, remember to stir now and then. If you want more gravy just add a little bit of water. You’ll be surprised at how yummy it is and how easy. Remove from the heat, take out the bay leaf (you don’t want to eat that lol).
Potato and Spinach Mash
I love making these mashed potatoes, it’s something that the whole family will eat, you can’t really taste the spinach AND is a good way to get the kiddos to eat the veggies too. Luckily for me though, my children love spinach and all sorts of vegetables.
I also like to substitute the spinach with carrots and make a potato and carrot mash which is equally delicious and the kids think it’s super cool because it’s orange.
All you need to do is make your mashed potatoes as usual.
While the potatoes are cooking, in a separate small saucepan, cook some frozen spinach with a little bit of salt. Again just follow the directions on the package. When cooked, drain and squeeze out as much of the liquid as you can.
I just add butter, milk, salt and pepper to mine, that’s it.

Sounds really good! We often cook hot Italian sausage in Drew's homemade marinara - so yummy. I am going to try the spinach-potato mash, too.
