Made for Freezer Tag 2008, â€œRecipe #49570â€�, Individual Sausage Loafes. This recipe really surprised me. Even though I am always looking for new takes on Italian food, I somehow didnâ€™t expect this to be so good. Followed the recipe to a T, and it tasted wonderful. And DB gobbled up so many, I had to snatch the last 3 and stick them in the freezer right away, else he would have eaten them too. As for the frozen ones, I took them out of the freezer last night and put in the fridge, and DB had them with him for lunch with cold paste and a bit of pasta sauce. He heated it for 2Â½ minutes in the microwave at work, and said they tasted just as good as the first time. Thank you James, for posting.
