Easy to Make - Sausage Scallopini

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Chesapeake

I used to buy this dish at an Italian Deli and loved it so much I decided to make it myself. I asked one of the owners of the deli what seasonings were in the dish said she said salt, the entire flavor comes from the ingredients. So I started and cooking and after a few tries, I got it, compared it and now it's yours to try!
