Recipe by Lorac

Boston's North End is famous for it's Italian markets, restaurants and saint's day weekend festivals and I miss it so much! I was thrilled to find "The North End Italian Cookbook" by Marguerite Buonopane.

What a way to make ground beef taste gourmet! This is spectacular! I followed the directions as written, but served the pattie on a large piece of garlic toast with the sauce drizzled over. My DD was standing next to me while it cooked drooling, she could not wait for it to be done. The patties are fantastic, and the sauce is heavenly. This will be made often in our house. A definite MUST TRY recipe!
