In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the sausage and render for 3 minutes. Add the onions and peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and continue to cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook for 2 minutes. Add the wine and bring the mixture to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Add the veal reduction and bring the mixture back to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the quail, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. To serve, spoon the Wild Pecan Rice in the center of each plate. Place 2 quails over each pile of rice. Spoon the sauce over the rice and garnish with parsley. Serve with crusty bread.
