  • To cook Italian sausages, use the tines of a fork to prick several holes in each sausage link. In a large skillet cook sausage links over medium heat about 5 minutes or until brown, turning frequently. Carefully add water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover and cook, turning frequently, until liquid evaporates and sausages are done (160 degrees F). Drain on paper towels.
