Directions:

Brown sausage and onions in large skillet until deeply colored and crispy. Add garlic the last 2 minutes of cooking, just to disperse flavors, breaking sausage into pieces as it sautes in the pan. Season with herbs, salt and pepper.

Sprinkle flour onto sausage and onion mixture, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add milk and broth to sausage mixture, stir and bring to a boil, add vegetables cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. Add more milk or broth, if needed.

Pour gravy over toasted bruschetta or rice, sprinkle on parsley and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper to taste and a squeeze of fresh lemon (optional). Top (or not) with a fried or poached egg or serve on the side with crispy, Sicilian hash browns.
