"This is one of the first recipes I tried from a subscription given by my Grandma ... quite a few years ago. It was my first experience with sausage in casings - do I take the meat out, or just mash it as it cooks?? Either way, it turned out great. I'm so so very happy I've found this recipe again!"

"I used all ground beef and canned diced tomatoes. I did not add mushrooms. This came out very moist -- almost soupy -- but was delicious."
