      I pretty much followed this recipe right on down & used some mild Italian sausage along with very lean ground beef ~ a nice combo of meats! Tasty as all get out, too, & another time I'll be making some to freeze, as well! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
