READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Lorac

This peasant style dish is another favorite from "The North End Italian Cookbook". It brings back memories of the wonderful restaurants in Boston's north end Italian neighborhoods.

These sausages reminded of something...a spanx. I tried one on and I looked like a sausage roll. Didn't make me look as shapely, either, just squeezed me OUT of shape. Welllll know thyself or not, as I always like to say. Great one-pot dish.
