    Cooks4_6's Note:

    My Italian ancestors come Southern Italy; specifically Calabria. This is similar to what I remember my Dad making; process and ingredients. He probably got the technique from his GF Frank Scavo...but we also have Comita, Scalzo, Gigliotti, Grande and Micelli in our who knows? (Frank made his own sausage..mmmmm) I highly suggest that you serve this over Creamy Parmesan Polenta (Parmesan Polenta)

      Thank you so much for sharing your family's recipe with us. The Italian side of my family too hails from Calabria and I was so happy to try your dish. This is true comfort food, and absolutely delicious! I wasn't sure and so left the sausages partially whole instead of slicing them in this dish. Also I used tsp's on the spices as I only had dried herbs and assumed the recipe was to be made with fresh herbs. Served over angel hair pasta. This was so good, I know I will make it often! Thank you, Cooks4_6 [Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag]
