Italian Style Garbanzos and Sausage Recipe 1


  • 1 pound smoked sausage
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 whole garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup red wine (I used Cabernet Sauvignon because that’s what I had on hand, but a merlot, burgundy, pinot noir or any red wine that you like should work just fine)
  • 1 – 28 oz. can whole tomatoes
  • 1 – 16 oz. can garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained
  • 6-7 largish fresh basil leaves, rough chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Begin by chopping up the onion, garlic and herbs, and cut up the smoked sausage in 1-2 inch sections.
  2. In a medium size skillet or sauté pan, brown sausage for a few minutes over medium heat. Remove the sausage from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan to just coat the bottom of the pan, and sauté the onion and garlic over medium heat until slightly transparent, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Next, add the red wine. Simmer the onion, garlic and wine for a few minutes until it reduces a little.
  5. After the wine has reduced, add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans (drained), chopped herbs, salt, pepper and browned smoked sausage. If you’re using whole tomatoes instead of diced, mash them up just a bit at this point. Simmer over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes. Sauce will thicken slightly.
