Looks easy to do. I have not tried this dish yet.

Thanks for the information. The sausages in Spain are very tasty. I was pleased to see thick chunks of chorizo sausage on a buffet there recently. I went the next day, hoping to find more, but they did not reappear again while we were staying in the hotel.

Hi Lisa,

Longaniza is a popular sausage in Spain. It tasted so good, as it offers flavors.

Hi, Dred cuam, thanks for sharing, although I detested frying eggplants and other alkaline vegetables.
