   Preparation time ò0 minutes (plus 45 minutes simmering)
   Ripe tomatoes may be replaced with 3 14-oz cans of tomatoes - drained and
   chopped.
   1. Slit sausages skins lengthwise with a knife tip. Remove sausage meat
   and “pinch” into small meatballs.
   2. Over medium heat in a large skillet or heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat
   olive oil. Add sausage and onions; cook for 10 minutes or until nicely
   browned, stirring frequently as you prepare carrots and potatoes.
   3. Stir in garlic, rosemary and thyme. Add carrots, potatoes and tomatoes.
   Let mixture come to a slow boil. Stir, adjust heat to simmer, cover and
   cook for 45 minutes or until vegetables are very tender, stirring once or
   twice. Check the liquid occasionally and, if necessary, add up to 1/4 cup
   boiling water.
   4. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each portion with
   chopped parsley, if desired.
