Sautéed Sauerkraut with Sausage and Pasta recipe is down. If you wish to skip it, just jump to the recipe.
For this, I thought I will already have published a recipe for homemade sauerkraut. You know a whole cabbage head, fermented, that I was sharing on social media?
I sincerely apologize for not posting it as I promised. It’s one of those things when you plan and you think you have all the pictorial ready and then realize half of them are gone.
Step-by-step instructions are so important for you to understand how to do it, so I will try to make it again (fermented cabbage), so you can do it yourself.
If you can get hold of homemade, then that’s awesome, but if you cannot, just use store-bought.
I will add more details into notes and tips under the recipe.
I absolutely love this dish. It’s one of those oldies, but goodies from your grannies kitchen.
You might ask, how can this Sautéed Sauerkraut with Sausage and Pasta possibly work together
Let me tell you, this combination is amazing and if you love sauerkraut as much as I do as well as smoked sausage, bacon, and pasta.
Well, then you’ll be in love with this one, too.
Yes, you read the title right, this is made with pasta
If I translate it directly it’s called “patches”, like clothing patches (krpice), because it looks like it.
In some areas of Former Yugoslavia, it’s called differently, and to tell you honestly, I cannot translate it to make sense.
Flekice – would be “little stains” or “stain spots” if you literally translate it. If I take it to plural, it’s “Fleka” and that translates into “stain”. Doesn’t sound very appealing, right?
I assume most of the grandmothers and mothers who still remember this dish from their childhood make pasta patches from scratch.
However, I skipped all the fuss. Since there is no way that I can find here real pasta patches, I did use lasagna sheets and just broke them into pieces.
Improvisation! Honestly, it is not hard to make it at all, but it was easier for me to get “Homestyle” lasagna sheets and be done with it in less than 10 minutes.
This is seriously one delicious winter dish that you guys must try!
It’s a very delicious dish, but my pics were all gone from a few years ago and I am working hard to replace or update it.
I made this numerous times with regular pasta, like macaroni, or bow tie etc. It just that with Homestyle lasagna reminds me of that old and forgotten recipe.
