Difficulty: easy

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, peeled and diced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tbsp fresh marjoram, finely chopped, plus additional leaves for garnish
1 pound ground Italian sausage
3 cups mashed potatoes
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
12 large radicchio leaves, blanched
2 tbsp water

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and marjoram and continue to sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the sausage and cook until browned and no longer pink about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked sausage mixture and the mashed potatoes and stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Pour 2 tbsp of water into the baking dish, cover and bake for 20 minutes, until filling is heated through.

6. Transfer to a serving dish, drizzle with remaining olive oil and garnish with fresh marjoram to serve.
