Description

Cotechino with Lentils... a New Year's Eve tradition. Cotechino is an Italian fresh pork sausage that has a creamy, mild flavor. It is usually produced in links under a foot long with a diameter of nearly three inches. Clove and nutmeg seasonings give the sausage a unique flavor. You may find this sausage online, or in authentic Italian butchers.

Why would you poke holes in the Cotechino then take it out of the pot? All of the good flavor is left in the pot! I add the poked Cotechino before the lentils and cook until lentils are done.
