“Salsiccia Calabrese” or “soppressata”, these are the names to look for when buying the key element of this recipe. Basically, it’s a chorizo-like pork meat sausage made in the Calabria region of Italy, but more spicy (because of the chilli) and with some hints of fennel (becuase they add some fennel seeds). Normally, it should be eaten with rustic bread and a glass of red wine, but it can also be used for making a lovely and tasty pasta sauce.
