I'm with Joey'smamma on this one. I've been part of an Italian family ....for a long time. I've never seen a dish like that in any Italian restaurant and I've been to loads throughout the years.
Definitely sounds like a tasty homemade recipe to my ear and the posters in this thread sound like they may have guessed it
It sure as heck sounds tasty.
I'm a veggie boy as well - and i add Yves ground round
to recipes similar to this, it's AWESOME when mixed into a sauce and WILL fool carnivores.
mmmmmmmmm getting hungry now.
