This sausage dish is the specialty of the Mount Pilion area. Mostly served during the winter months in the mountain tavernas. Local people still make their own spicy sausage. I spent Easter there, wanted to taste the dish made by the locals but cause of Lent they didn't serve any meat dishes. So I bought some & this is how I made it! It was delicious but a bit spicier than what I'd like. My husband & I though shared a bottle of wine. Not spicy any more:) It's suppose to be spicy but all depends on the sausage you use. Hope you try it & enjoy it!
