My half-sicilian husband liked these fine, but likes his mother's recipe better. Go figure. Personally, I love the addition of currents and pine nuts and prefer these. :) Use these with your favorite sauce and pasta. I usually double the recipe and use 1 pound of sausage and 1 pound of ground beef. This came originally from the Epicurious website. Prep time and servings are approximate. Hope you enjoy!
