One of my favorite comfort foods to date is Sicilian-Style Stuffed Peppers; made with Sausage & Couscous. A delicious version of stuffed peppers made with quality Italian sausage, Ramano-Parmesan cheese, couscous cooked with Rosemary and Authentic olive oil, placed in sweet bell peppers served with fire roasted San Marzano tomato and red wine sauce.
Some of you may not realize Couscous has been a part of Sicilian cooking since Sicily was under Arab rule, a period of enlightenment whose cultural, social and economic reforms had a profound and long-lasting influence that is still felt today in Sicilian societies. One of the most common dishes in western Sicily is couscous, an obvious dish from the Arab culture.
Did you know couscous is a celebrated menu item each year at the end of September in gorgeous San Vito Lo Capo? Each year chefs from Algeria, Brazil, Eritrea, Ethiopia, France, Israel, Italy, Morocco, Mauritania, Palestine, Senegal, Tunisia, and Turkey all compete for the ‘Best Couscous’ award at the International Couscous Festival. —> Get the recipe
