I first posted this recipe back in 2007. My now ninety-six year old neighbor has made this forever on New Years Day, and yes, she will be making it this year as well, and it is absolutely fantastic. Pair it with some crusty fresh bread and a green salad and it’s just the best, ever!!!
So here it is again, if you make black-eyed peas for luck on New Years Day, this is a winner!
2 cans black-eyed peas, I drain and rinse for a more subtle flavor
2 cans italian stewed tomatoes
1 lb. sweet italian sausage, with casing removed
1 large onion
2 tablespoons of italian seasoning
1 teaspoon of oregano, if desired
Brown onion and sausage, drain, crumble and dump all in a crockpot, simmer on high for 3-4 hours, meanwhile cook a cup or so of pasta, any small pasta will work and stir it in at the end.
This is so good, and so easy….
Enjoy and Happy New Year
