    We have this awesome "supper" from time to time. Italian tortellini w/ meat sauce...some sausage. cooked all day in the slow cooker. let me share a "stew view" with ya first.......

    shrooms, cheese, tortellini, bits of sausage, sauce

    cheese filled tortellini......


    I think I am going to roll some fatties with this here goodie. Its already in the freezer for this weekend. I think the coagulation should help me roll it, once it defrosts a bit. Question: roll it in sausage or burger or? Any suggestions please. If'in it works out this weekend I shall qview fo sho!

    I believe Texas-Hunter beat ya to the idea, however I don't recall if there was actual sauce in it....YUM either way!

    TIP: Add good <I like Progresso> breadcrumbs to stiffen the sauce and affect flavor little :{)

    Hey Uncle Honky!
    I vote for a mix of hot and mild Italian sausage then wrap that baby in either prochutto or panchetta (I prefer panchetta, but it has been brought to my attention this is not available everywhere)
    In any case it sounds really yummy!
    Happy Smokes

    I have to watch my diet and your talking Italian. I get no respect you know. Actually, it sounds like a winner, go for it.

    Pasta in a fattie works well. I used hot sausage in my chili mac fattie. The sauce and extra cheese was wonderful.
     
  8. love the videos - though I have to say some of the voice overs on the first one sound a lot like the voice overs you get in **** films (so I've heard - never seen one myself you understand ;-)

    So what's with the kettle smoking. I presume you're using the kettle element to get smoke from the wood. But what's it used for - didn't seem to fit into optimus anywhere.
