In a large stainless-steel pot, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Add the sausages and brown well, about 10 minutes. Remove. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat.
Reduce the heat to moderate. Add the garlic, potatoes, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and boil until reduced to approximately 3 tablespoons, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in the broth, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, 4 tablespoons of the parsley, the salt, and the sausages. Bring to a simmer and cook, partially covered, until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons parsley and the pepper.
• Rosemary for the thyme
• Red wine for the white wine
• Hot Italian sausage for the mild
This dish suggests Cabernet Sauvignon or Sangiovese as a wine partner. You can have both in Carmignano, a rich Tuscan red based on the two grapes. Many good Chianti Classicos also have a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and will work well here.
