I’m in love with linguica! And pasta, of course but let’s talk about linguica. If you don’t know anything about linguica, where have you been? And where do you live? I’m fortunate to live in an area with a huge Portuguese population…my husband and kids are from Portuguese descent. So, yes, I cook some Portuguese meals and the cuisine has had a huge influence in my cooking. I often substitute linguica for Italian sausage in many recipes. Cacciatore is one of those recipes where linguica shines when substituted for Italian sausage or chicken.
Luckily when I present my cooking classes for the Council on Aging, the audience shares my appreciation for linguica (and most of what I cook, especially since they are eating it for lunch)! This recipe with a simple salad is easy and delicious! I hope you make and enjoy this meal. You can view my complete What’s Linda Cooking show for Linguica Cacciatore by clicking on the link. Enjoy!
