  1. In an oiled large, heavy frying pan, bake sausages in a 350°F oven, turning once, until lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and cut into 2-inch diagonal slices. Add enough oil to frying pan to make 3 tablespoons. Add onions and sauté until limp. Stir in remaining ingredients except 1/4 cup of the parsley. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with remaining parsley. Makes 4 to 5 servings.
  2. COOKED LIMAS. Put 1 1/2 cups large dry lima beans, rinsed, into a large kettle. Add enough cold water to cover deeply. Heat to boiling; boil for 2 minutes; remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour. Drain, rinse, and cover with fresh salted water. Heat to boiling, then gently boil, uncovered, until beans are tender, about 45 minutes; drain.
  3. SUGGESTED ACCOMPANIMENTS: Cooked chard dressed with oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper served at room temperature. Large bread sticks or crusty bread. Full fruity red table wine, as a hearty California Zinfandel. Chilled fresh orange segments.
  4. Woman’s Day.
