Cooking in water:

It's the more often used way, but unfortunately the less best one: a part of the sausage taste flavor with cooking water.

Put the sausage in a large pan and cover with cold water, don't prick it because water would get inside and spoil the flavor, cook on medium heat, covered with a lid, for 40 minutes.

Note: Then you can use the cooking water, for cooking rice or pasta for example.

Stage 2

Cooking in oven:

Tastier because the sausage cooks in its own juices, which concentrates flavors.

Wrap sausage in 2 layers of aluminum foil, put in the oven at 390°F (200°C), for approximately 40-45 minutes.
