    Dee514's Note:

    Posted by request. Every Italian family has their own version of this dish. My grandmother made it with a simple garlic/cheese "stuffing", which is the same way I still make it. It can be served as a main course or as part of the "meat course" along with the meatballs, sausage, etc.

      this was delicious. I was getting sick of spaghetti which is what my picky DH loves most so I tried this for a little difference and it was a big hit! I cooked it on low in my crockpot and it was fork tender! Thanks dee!

      Excellent made almost as written except added a little fresh basil. Also I browned the meat set it aside and made the sauce in the pan that I had used to brown the meat, to get all the brown bits of goodness in my sauce. Thank you for the excellent recipe.
