Brandi's Story

This recipe was a staple growing up in a family of eight, six of which were male! To this day it is the most requested and desired meal when the family is all together. My mom has even gotten to the point where she freezes it for when the boys come home on holidays they can take a small tub home. I don't believe there has ever been a time that this was made that mom wasn't always getting after us to stay out of the sauce before dinner!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Don't be deterred by the inclusion of hot sausage in this yummy recipe... The sauce if every bit an heirloom, accessible to family members of all ages. Yum!

Thanks for your reply Roger. The fennel in the sweet Italian Sausage is what I don't like about it....so maybe I'll be better off if I leave the fennel seed out when I make this. 4/4/14

As you are probably aware fennel is the spice that gives sweet italian sausage it's great taste. If you do not like sweet italian sausage then leave the spice out. As an option you could heat it up with cayenne or pepper flakes.

Well, I was finally able to add this recipe to my recipe box in JAP. Brandi...would this be just as good without the fennel seed as I'm not crazy about it...or should I put it in there anyway? I hate to leave an ingredient out when I make a recipe for the first time.
