Sausages with green lentils and tomato salsa

Sometimes food just looks so good you have to make it, whether you want to or not. I mean, look at how pretty that picture is. And turns out it’s pretty good, too! It’s a surprisingly sweet salsa to go with the sausage. Here’s my interpretation of Jamie Oliver’s recipe:

Ingredients
4 Italian Sausages
Olive oil
1 small red onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 small stick of cinnamon
crushed red peppers (to taste)
2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
16 oz plum or grape tomatoes, diced finely

In a pan, put the olive oil, onion, garlic, cinnamon, and red peppers on for about 10 minutes on a low heat. When the onions are soft and turning translucent, turn up the heat and after a moment add the red wine vinegar. Then turn the down the heat and simmer slowly for about half an hour. Cook the sausages while you are waiting.

When everything’s all cooked, remove the cinnamon stick then combine the salsa and the sausages. I could only find pre-cooked lentils when I went shopping (sigh), so I didn’t get to try his recipe for those. Enjoy!
