    Substituting Italian Sausage for Portugese sausage is OK for folks who live in rural areas where the Portugese sausages are unavailable.

    This is a Portuguese soup….Italian sausage & olive oil? Use linguica or chourico(Portuguese sausage). Most Portuguese people will use red kidney beans and some red table wine.
