Do not piece the skin of the sausage. This will allow the juices to stay inside the sausage, keeping it moist and maximizing flavor.

Since we are using UNCOOKED PORK the internal temperature of the sausage must reach 160 F. Use a food thermometer to be sure, if you don't have one make sure there is no pink left in the middle of the sausage.

You can eat this dish by itself, or add it to pasta/subs to make it go further.

You can add marinara sauce if you like.
