Sausage grass recipe

The gramigna with sausage is a traditional first course in Emilian cuisine, particularly in the provinces of Modena and Bologna.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 320 g of grass
  • 350 g of sausage
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 1 small white onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 200 ml of tomato sauce
  • 1/2 glass of white wine
  • 1 knob of butter
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sale
  • pepe


    1. Begin preparing the gramigna with the sausage from the sauce. Brown the celery, carrot, and onion in a saucepan with 2-3 tablespoons oil and butter. Allow them to dry on a low heat, stirring frequently. When they're shiny, add the sausage without the casing and chop it with a wooden spoon to get rid of the grain. Brown it thoroughly.
    2. When the meat has changed color, combine it with the white wine and cook over high heat until it has evaporated. Then add the tomato puree and the diluted concentrate in two cups of hot water. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cook, covered, for 45 minutes, stirring frequently. Boil the weed in salted water until al dente, then drain and add to the sauce in the saucepan.
    3. Transfer the sausage to the serving dishes and top with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
