Expert Tips

  • One pound fully cooked mild Italian sausages can be used for the uncooked links.
  • Cut meat and vegetables into pieces of uniform size to ensure even cooking. Meat and poultry will be easier to slice if you freeze them slightly before cutting.
  • Shave fresh Parmesan cheese over this Italian bowl.
