This is so tasty and satisfying. It is just as good the next day too...it doesn't dry out like some pasta dishes. I just happened to have the pasta sauce and some fusilli and came up with this. The Italian Sausage in the sauce really gives it a nice flavor without being overpowering. We liked it better than lasagne. Served with a salad and garlic bread. Figure I'd better post it before I forgot what I did. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
This was a recipe I requested from Mrs. Williams almost 50 years ago after her husband brought them into work. It was and still remains the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever had. My DDs (and now my DGDs) made this in their teens and now for their families. A real favorite that has become a family tradition. The batter is a bit stiff to mix, but worth the effort and then some.
Curt's mom, Ann, used to beg me to make these for her. She put my recipe in her church's cook-book and named it Chicken Gizzards a la Dena. She said they were so good they needed a fancy name. We had many laughs over this.
This is for you, Ann. We miss you!
The ingredients don't have to be exact; just use them as a guideline. Hope you enjoy! Dena
